Again, the difference between the active vs passive aspect. A movie is the product itself, a video of the game, isn't the game.
But it is, at least partially, sure you might not be playing, but you are still experiencing the visuals, the story, and the music, those are elements of the game that you are still pirating by watching a tit streamer playing the game in full for example.
That said, there have been studies that show a mild amount of piracy does actually help increase sales.
And you can listen to the Beatles and countless other music acts to know that taking illegal drugs can produce some sick music, that doesn't mean that you should legalize LSD.

Partially. The rest of it is your own experience. Think of a game like five nights at freddies. The game is for the most part, still images. But the transformative nature of the, as you said, tit streamer, is them playing it. Her jumping up, screaming, and her tits possibly popping out changes it.

I think all drugs should be legal. It shouldn't be up to the government to protect idiots from being idiots. Also, there has been studies showing that LSD as a great treatment for PTSD. When done correctly.

Edit: I remembered an artist who made a career out of stealing others art and content. It was found by the courts that his minor alterations were enough to account for fair use. One time he got found guilty of it, but, it was overturned a few years later. So it just stealing someone elses photos and putting them on canvas with a few comments. Unless the company has the rights to how you would play the game, I think it is 100% within fair use.

Artist was Richard Prince.

Only one way to find out. Talk to a lawyer about it.
Funny you mention talking to a lawyer. Just so happens a copyright specialist goes over why you're wrong.

Transformative isn't enough

i made it through 10min of that video it was the same ranting , raving, and pure spergatory that jim sterling would do on his own videos. Imitation is the truest form of flattery one would say.

Except this also fucking ignores that most developers and publishers actually do give expressed licenses to streamers, which in turn allows them to stream the game legally. Now this can always retroactively be revoked, but it absolutely is currently given.

Not only that - but it's a very common practice for developers/publishers to pay streamers to play the game - in order to essentially demonstrate it to their audience. It's something that's been done for nearly a decade, meaning that developers/publishers have substantial data that investing in streamers gives them access to those audiences - and that they see a substantial return on their investment,

Regardless of Fair Use - streamers have cultivated a very specific advertising demographic and that's incredibly valuable to developers/publishers and they know it and have had a good relationship with streamers for years.

The Stadia team wouldn't know that, as they don't actual make products that people want - just re-releases of tired games and exclusives that no one gives a shit about.

To jump on the autism train. Technically, if devs want streamers to pay them to showcase their games, then it's in their legal right. But it doesn't happen due to game streaming being seen (and very likely being) as an overall beneficial method in creating hype for a game. So the whole argument is a pointless since no sane dev will really risk the bad press and lack of publicity.

You got timestamps where he straight up says that? Don't want to watch an hour long video for something that could probably be described in 2 minutes. And even then, there is the example I put in another post. An artist who straight up just stole others content, did minor changes, and was found to not be infringing on copyright. Even when directly stealing anothers image.

I find the entire video somewhat applicable. I'd recommend all of it.
