Indiscriminate strikes on YouTube (have consequences) (Destiny)

Thank you. Admittedly I was too lazy (and didn’t care enough) to go looking for that info. But that is the information I was curious about.

I still think it’s stupid. This kid’s life will be ruined, Bungie and it’s community (and probably Google) will tout it as a win and then move on. Nothing will actually change, small creators will still have their channels (and livelihoods) live and die by the whims of takedowns that they can’t even defend against. Whippeee.

Bungie used the filing to puff up free to play lol:

23. And this isn’t just gratifying for Bungie, though seeing the community’s love for its game is certainly that. Destiny’s base game is free to play, as is character levelling – gamers can play Destiny 2 without purchasing anything at all unless they want to.

24. Instead, Bungie’s income stream from the Destiny 2 game is entirely based on additional content gamers choose to buy: downloadable content including expansions (additional campaigns and storylines), in-game currency (“Silver,” which players can purchase for real money and use in the Destiny 2 world to “purchase” cosmetic items for their characters), seasonal content, and other in-game features and additions.

25. Thus, unlike a more typical model in which companies earn income by retailing individual copies or downloads of games, Bungie generates revenue from Destiny 2 if and only if its players find the game experience so compelling and enjoyable that they want to buy additional content.
