: I'm curious about copyright violation in relation to the various video clips available on e.g. gamespot.com.
: If you use a video camera to record a computer game being played, what can one do/not do with this video.
: A computer game is an interactive entertainment form.
: How is this in relation to other games like chess, trivia, solitaire, etc. Althoug these games are so old that noone can have copyrgihts, filming someone playing chess could surely not be a copyright issue?
: Can a video recording of any game/computer game be distributed. Gamespot charges a member fee, wich enables you to download the video clips.
