Gameplay Videos Getting Flagged On YouTube Again

It looks like policy changes could make it hard for folks to make a buck off YouTube "let's play" videos.

YouTube has confirmed it's taking a fresher, steely approach to videos flagged by its "Content ID Match" system, which will have an impact on monetization of Let's Play content. Prominent accounts such as TheRadBrad, TetraNinja and GhostRobo have received claims, which seem to be targeting music specifically. A YouTube representative told Game Informer that these claims are part of some policy updates to better help content networks be more transparent.
