One of our favorite topics here in Virtual Legality is the unusual relationship between video games, streaming, copyrights, and software licensing; and in particular how a failure to license the right to actually stream (or make videos from) games puts creators in a precarious position.

Now game publish Capcom has tried to clarify its position on streaming by adopting a new "Video Policy", but are its efforts enough?

Let's dive in.

In the "wright" light all attorneys can be "ace", at least...in Virtual Legality.
