We've recently been inundated with requests from users who wish to record games and tournaments played on ChessCube and upload them on YouTube.
Having said that - many users out there have asked us to provide them with commercial rights for gameplay footage in order for the users to monetize each videos and earn revenue from YouTube.
Today - I'm happy to let you know that as of now - ChessCube has granted all users recording gameplay on our site with full commercial rights for use of monetization on YouTube. If you want to use footage of one of our games on YouTube channel or website we're happy for you to go ahead just as long as you are not charging viewers directly to watch your videos. Also - all we ask that you include a link in the description of your videos pointing back to http://www.chesscube.com.
If you are a YouTube partner with the ability to monetize your videos, simply paste this forum post URL and the contents of this forum into the "More Info" box when asked for proof that you're able to monetize your videos commercially.
We're hoping that many other platforms will follow this standard and allow all gameplay footage to go up onto YouTube for the world to see just how much we enjoy playing our favourite games.
