It's perfectly enforceable (contrary to what YouTubers may tell you, free use doesn't apply to 90% of what they put up; companies just don't usually see it as worth it bother taking down), and even if it weren't, exactly no one is going to lawyer up over it.

Does it? Anyone who had any interest in tabletop gaming already knows what Warhammer is.I don't think many people are going to be drawn into such a niche and expensive hobby just because they like one setting's lore.

It's overwhelmingly more likely that such a person would just buy more video games or novels, maybe skim the army books and RPG books if they're relatively hardcore (said books are so freely available, partly thanks to this website, that 4chan pdfs are first-page Google results for many of them). And, harsh as it may sound, from GW's perspective these people do not matter. Secondaries almost certainly outnumber primaries by a good margin, but they're responsible for less than 20% of all GW's revenue (pic related). Only the people who spend hundreds to thousands of dollars on models are relevant to decision making, and they're not likely to stop buying just because fan animations got shut down.

I won't even touch on de jure, but it's completely unenforcable de facto without completely annihilating your brand image, fanbase, and ability to have word-of-mouth promotion. Nintendo, one of the most litigious companies in the WORLD when it comes to their IP to the point they've sued over the SOUND OF PICKING UP A COIN being too close to their "iconic" coin-pick-up-sound, doesn't have IP enforcement this harsh. DISNEY doesn't have IP enforcement this harsh, and they're literally the reason draconian IP laws EXIST. This is GW trying to make Icarus look like a chump. It's a Bezos wagie cagie moment.

>>80433266
Parody is different. A lot of the Warhammer animations are straight fan films aping intellectual property. The more comparable case is those high-budget Star Trek fan films and series getting BTFO by Paramount's lawyers. For example:

https://www.theverge.com/2017/1/5/14181534/star-trek-fan-film-copyright-lawsuit-paramount

TTS might be safe (if the creator doesn't buckle under the first copyright strike or cease-and-desist, as he probably will) but something like Astartes would absolutely not hold up.

>>
>>80433427
Your error is assuming general opinion matters. GW isn't a video game, film, or television company and the IP isn't owned by Creative Assembly, Fatshark, or Fantasy Flight Games. They do not rely on mass appeal at all. 80% of their revenue comes from a small self-selected group,* and within said group it's very likely that an even tinier group of whales provide more the rest combined (as is the case for other devoted hobbyists like gamblers or purchasers of video game DLC). As long as that tiny group is kept placated they can do whatever they want.>>80433414

*If you assume the average player spends perhaps low hundreds of dollars per year on the hobby, and considering GW revenue without licensed products consistently hovered around 100 million pounds a year before 2017, and further considering that such hobbyists are disproportionately likely to stay committed, that would imply on average low hundreds of thousands of players. This matches vague estimates I've found online. By contrast TWW2 alone sold, what, 4 million copies?

Why would you have a a right wing take on whether to use agrax or nuln oil on your model?

>>80433519
Whales need the 80% to lord over, anon. That is part of the placation method. That's why MMOs that have free-to-play make sure that yes, the whales get bullshit that lets them stomp the fuck out of the peasants, but the peasants can still have an enjoyable experience. If the peasants leave, the whales just have other whales in the group, which isn't psychologically satisfying for the whales, so they'll move on.
If GW is fine regressing into an actual pure model company that basically just sells elaborate resin paperweights (and also going from being a corporation to a company), then this would make perfect sense, but doing this will quash their ability to draw in new whales to replace the old ones and doom them to irrelevance. Thinking that GW can keep on going indefinitely on sheer inertia when they actively do things to kill said inertia requires extreme ignorance to economic realities.

I think you all are missing the point, it would be self-destructive and impractical to remove every fan animation. This is to give them cover to remove specific ones that they see as competitors to WH+ or think are hurting their image

While the rest are basically no-brainers, these two are going to be harder to enforce, because what the fuck will prejudicial mean to Games Workshop? And as for fundraising activity, if we're talking Patreon for example, the artist isn't being paid to make those works, and it may well be a side bit not related to their fundraising needs: Having a youtube channel talking about table top miniature wargames for example, with the art only being a side thing.
It's one of those things that's case by case if you look at it from a reasonable standpoint, but GW are not only a corporation, but one well know for being massively greedy. In fact, Games Workshop have shown LESS "goodwill" and "integrity" to their own IP than anybody else has.
>>

I think that's overlooking the fact that the intended audience for the streaming service are almost certainly going to be the secondaries. The guys spending thousands on minis aren't likely to spend thousands more on a streaming subscription. GW making a streaming service rather suggests that they ARE trying to draw in large numbers of those secondary's to expand that 20% of revenue.

Which is where this all ends up looking self-defeating to me. Those fan animations drawing in millions of views were guaranteed to have benefited GW by providing free advertising. Taking down the fan animations and sticking them all on the streaming service is a crap shoot that will only pay off if GW can make Warhammer+ take off. Which seems a bit dubious considering how much the fan stuff ended up outshining them.

It's not, dipshit, learn some copyright law. It is only enforceable because Youtube chose to save a small amount of money on enforcement processes by parallel replicating the entire structure of the DMCA takedown process with exactly zero protections nor verifications. They're literally counting on Youtube being such an unprofitable platform for the majority of its users that it's never viable to countersue.
>>
>>80433227

LEgality doesn't matter. Youtube doesn't follow the DMCA. Youtube created a parallel process to the DMCA that contains all of the same measures for removal of content, but surgically removes every protection for those subect to DMCA takedowns, eliminates most of the requirements for verifications and provision of contact information by those issuing requests, and covers its dick with shoddy terms of service. This has never been legally tested, principally because Youtube is such a shitty platform that less than one hundred people on the entire platform make enough per video to ever make a countersuit financially viable, and these exact people are most exposed to the ineviable account suspension.

As a result they save 3% of monitoring costs and make less than two million dollars more per year.

>>80439549
Why would it need to be legally tested? There's literally no actual DMCA stuff going on there right, just a parallel and harsher youtube system meant to minimize their exposure to the actual law.

Some of the more confident copyright practitioners I know believe they have a viable argument for Youtube's parallel process being deficient, particularly because it diverts actual DMCA claims into its own process. If you can successfully attack the parallel process protection or the refusal to notify or permit contact, that gets you an angle of attack on the literally-unlawful automated claims process - the requirement to positively consider fair use prior to sending claims is sufficiently incompatible with automated claims that it would break that system wide open.

Attacking the parallel process is where it gets finicky. Both of them were explaining their argument to me but the office party ran out of wine so I left.

The other vital weakness is finding a sponsor for their argument. Anyone who's successful enough on Youtube to have $180,000 or so to spend on litigation is by that point reliant on Youtube, and since Youtube would be legally protected for kicking them off the platform for suing them, they would be facing significant loss.

Alright, smartarse, Adsense makes the money. But Youtube costs Google money, and this reduces the cost by 3% of monitoring costs or about two million dollars, which means the balance sheet is two million dollars better for whatever poor rainman fucker has to look at Google's actual accounts.

>>80439810
No, the ads that are run on Youtube do not result in any profit being made. It barely puts a dent in the gargantuan operating costs. Youtube results in a multi-billion dollar loss every single year; even with billion in revenue from ads, premium accounts, and monetization like superchats and movie rentals. Which has only been getting worse as usage trends upward exponentially but ad revenue goes down. (The multiple controversy driven Adpocalypses, regulatory crackdowns relating to kids content namely)

They're probably not too happy about it, but since it's all literal fan art, they probably don't do anything about it. Bowser is too famous an icon to destroy.
You might be asking why they would destroy Bowser instead of telling people to stop drawing fan art of Bowsette...
There was a schoolbook, I'm sure any crossboarders from /a/ will know which one I'm talking about, it was intended for young kids, juniors, age 5-8 range: An actual, real curricular school book, featuring fictional anime characters, including the teacher, who was an American born woman. Miss Baker, I think she was called, correct me /a/dventurers if you're in the audience tonight.
So it wasn't long before the books were shelved and all anime was purged from school curriculum forever. See, anime has a certain type of fanbase. Here, you might see "coomer" being thrown around, and we're talking a little bit like that, the kind that will have made porn of the anime girly who first appeared in the episode of the anime they just watched an hour ago; the kind that would superglue a high fidelity dick pic underneath a page of The Very Hungry Caterpillar; the kind that would make porn of Miss Baker. Lots of porn. Post it fucking everywhere.
They couldn't exactly stop people from drawing anime porn. Instead, they pulled Miss Baker, and decided to not go near anime again.

this 100% making your own canon is fun and all but when you sacrifice the jokes for the serious moments in your plot it starts going to shit universally. the last episode was a slog but the shorts were pretty good he released after, but if he doesn't make the next episode well it'll just be a deathblow desu.

This is what happens when you have an army of lawyers, but no work to occupy them.

And that suit didn't succeed because the court smacked their head and said "you can't copyright a term invented 30 years before your shit company".

It does kind of bug me just how much effort some people will put into fan projects, not because it is 'stealing' in any fashion but more just how creatively bankrupt it is, and how much it just wastes talent that could otherwise be going toward original works.

>>80442945
I don’t think GW would have cared if people *just* made fan films, the problem is there is a recent trend with some people trying to live and profit off fan or unlicensed productions.
>>
>>80442945
The problem here is that people like you think that if you stymie someone from working on a fan project, they'll channel that passion into making something original. The truth is that if you stymie that project, that person will probably just not producing ANYTHING because working off of something already established is exponentially easier than making something from whole cloth and they're likely making their project more as a love-letter to the series in question than because they have a profound internal expression they need to actualize into the world.
Not to mention that adding to or adapting already-extant work is how a lot of the pre-Modern literary canon came into being; Paradise Lost is basically Bible fanfic.

>>80433255
There's a huge difference between doing a fan work, and doing a fan work where you get paid for it. That's where the lawyers get involved, and that's when companies start cracking down, because it can open up a huge can of IP ownership disputes if they don't.

That's why fan artists, authors, and filmmakers in the past didn't tout for money from patreon or donations, and paid for everything themselves.

Seriously, fan creators years ago knew this, and Paramount/CBS gave a biiig reminder a couple of years ago over Azanar, why the fuck do none of these dumb fucks pick up on this shit?

>>80444369
>Buy a new army
yes, at 35€ each 10 Cadian box I will start a new army and give money to such scumbag company...
Besides I love the creation aspect of the the hobby, making my own shit with it's own lore is the spice of the hobby for me, and they are killing it or at least restraining it

GW will trow under a bus it's hardcore/all time fans for normies and SJW if they could make more money from it and you know it, that's the sad reality like it or not, what they did to Warhammer Fantasy was a good example
>>
>That's why fan artists, authors, and filmmakers in the past didn't tout for money from patreon or donations, and paid for everything themselves.

Finally, someone getting it. The problem (for GW) is not the fancontent in and of itself, it's the fact people leech off their IP.

I hate to say it, but this is also truth. GW is a company, and they will go where their customers are. If you have a group of customers who are paying $1000 a year for your product, and one who is torrenting stuff online and buying chinese recasts and maaaaaaybe throwing $50 a year your way because, I don't know, you want some dice, then the person spending $50 is not as important to the company's future as the group spending $1000 each. It's simple economics.

They want to stay in business, so they will go where the money is. If you are not where the money is, you're not their audience anymore. Literally. And that's on you, not them, because you stopped being their customer.

You're a fucking idiot. Being "in the right" doesn't mean it make a single lick of sense from any stand point.
Literally dumping free marketing in the millions of views down the drain. Astartes went viral, and people who didn't even know about 40k started looking into it.

Yes, GW put in zero effort. That's what free means. Guess what people do of they're interested in something? They go look at it. If they look at it, they find the website. If they find the website, they see the shit they can buy. I know of personally, at least 3 people who bought either some books from Black Library or a starter model kit after seeing some fan films. And I'm in bum fuck no where
Is your point fucking somehow, that people who engage in low effort activities like watching a video are entirely incapable of doing high effort or high time investment hobbies? You're on 4chan, posting in a message board. Pretty damn low intensity activity. I guess you don't own or build anything?

If GW had half a brain when it came to actually making money in the modern day, they'd be gleeful about all the free advertisement they get from nerds making lore analysis, fan videos, podcasts and lets plays of their precious IP. Some channels have hundred of thousands of subscribers, some of whom surely have disposable income to throw at GW.
Or decide not to throw anything at GW because the dude that introduced them to the setting goes "Welp. I can't make videos about this any more, because GW said they'd sue me if I did."

>>80445463
I understand the need for intellectual property, since everyone's gotta eat, and a writer/artist/coder/etc deserve proper compensation for their creations, the current system is not focused on making the creator money, but whatever corporation buys the rights and holds onto them. Fuck Disney. I can't WAIT to see Mickey Mouse enter the collective commons.

>>
>>80445809
They've managed it several times in the past, this is very true.

However, all their recent attempts have been shot down over and over again in recent years. While the House of Mouse has an extensive legal team, the opposition to their attempts are VASTLY superior, both numerically, financially, and influence. It's not just a bunch of hippies, nerds, and freelancers, there's actual corporate backing in making sure the public domains timeline isn't pushed back yet again.

The Mouse's minions keep trying, but they have been shot down over and over again. 2024, the Mouse will be free for the public to use and abuse to their liking.

>>80445852
Every one that stops, or decides never to, is another pile of disposable income throwing their money at other things instead of GW.

I don't think you understand what that word means. Of course they can still spend their own money on marketing, that's how being a business works.
But if someone fucking helps you, by literally donating hundreds of their own man hours by animating something that makes people gain an interest in your product, that's a POSITIVE for you, you fucking dip

>>80445942
I don't need to reconsider. I checked their website, as someone else posted bits of it in this thread.

https://www.games-workshop.com/en-AU/Intellectual-Property-Guidelines

"We love to see fans enjoying all things Warhammer. We also have a duty to preserve and protect our intellectual property rights – this is the only way we can ensure that Warhammer will be around forever. Our goal is to do this while continuing to support the passion and creativity of our fans. We will level with you – this is a difficult balancing act."

"Please be aware that where fan content is created based on our settings and characters, Games Workshop retains ownership in respect of the underlying intellectual property rights in those worlds, and therefore such fan content cannot be sold or otherwise monetised."

It mentions monetisation of fan works a number of times being the big no-no. Op's image is from the bottom, but the rest of the page clearly spells out you can make fan art, fan magazines, fan videos, etc, JUST NOT GET PAID FOR THEM. You might argue fan films doesn't fall under the top, but the website section mentions animations specifically as long as they don't include official assets/animations.
>>
>>80440680
It's necessary because people would constantly keep stealing your ideas and you wouldn't make any money.
The best I can figure out is, they shouldn't allow IP to be sold to a corporation, the corporation should only be able to borrow it, after which it goes back to public domain.
>>
>>80444440
Yeah m8 which is exactly why they could've treated them like how they treat artists.
100% ok to draw stuff as long as you don't monetise it.
They went one step further for animations which is the crux of the entire problem
>>
>>80446358
>OY VEY

>>80446358
Well, that'll kill pretty much every 'Tuber who does Warhammer lore videos, since those are monetized. It'll also put a nail through any artist who does 40k commissions. Hell, you could argue it would apply to any streamer who got tips while playing a GW game. Or anyone who does GW related things and has a patreon.

They are trying to choke out anyone who dares to make money on their IP, regardless of how they are. I understand being harsh to anyone who makes counterfeit minis, since that is their bread and butter. But going after a dude who dissects 40k lore into bite sized bits for newcomers to understand? Or the artist who is commissioned by some degenerate to make SoB smut?

These people are providing a service GW isn't, and if GW wants to make money off the bootleg space marine plushie market, they should actually make a space marine plushie, instead of screaming at the nerd tailor who decided to fill that miniscule niche of a market themselves.

That's hilarious. Let's report as many 40k channels as possible and get them taken down. Either people will get sick of GW and start an open source 40k, or GW loses normie exposure on Youtube.

But that's bullshit and you know it. GW has already been through years long period when it's ability to attract new people were nearly nonexistent due to their own mismanagment and shortsightedness. WFB crashed in flames, early AOS was doing very badly initially, 40k stagnated, everything was very expensive to get into, and during that time things got so bad that the fucking PP briefly got ahead of them.

Everything they have done since '16 or so, new lines of starters, Underworlds, KT, specialist games and more were toa ttract new peopple/people who remembered fondly their IPs but weren't their paypigs. You're unironically retarded if you believe GW caters to about 20% of the whales, absolutely everyone got to know that big ol' load of shit,

>>
>>80433227
Legally speaking, making fan art/films/fiction isn't infringing on copyright as long as it's not for profit, but the grey area, which they could use to remove videos from YT and the like, comes when a site hosting the content benefits from it financially. GW could argue that Youtube getting add revenue from fan animations would constitute as them profiting from GW's IP, and while it probably wouldn't hold in court it's easier for YT to just remove the video than go through the legal hassle.
>>
>>80447237
>It's an online video streaming service like Netflix
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!
Okay they are retarded.
I mean, Astartes (aka the best example of Warhammer-related animation) was nice, but let's be honest, it was level of AA video game cinematic, do they really want to kickstart Netflix analogue with this and some lore-videos (and unlike fan-made videos it will be just reading lore from sources on camera, without any speculations or discussion)?
Disney had to bring some actual meat for Disney+ and call back fucking Lucas into Mandalorian.

Stop being dense ass niggers. Ever since the Astartes fan-video, there's been a flood of shitty Source Film Maker animations using 40k IP where people are begging for Patreon bux to make more content. This is targeted at grifters pounding out shit tier work and begging for patreon/etc for it, which drags down the IP. If you are passionate enough about something, you'll make a fan video without monetising it.

They have something like six animated series lined up, exclusive models you get with the subscription, the lore videos, and back issues of white dwarf. Not the worst deal for 5 bucks a month.
>unlike fan videos it will be without speculation
Other way around, they have access to the writers so they can promise to reveal new things or answer questions definititively.

Still not worthy since everything can be easily downloaded for free

They still will be much more restricted in terms of "what to say"

Saying you can steal something isn't really an argument about whether a cost is fair, it doesn't make sense to pay for anything at all if you follow that logic through.

Generally yes, it's just matter of how difficult to steal. Years of copyrighters didn't ended Internet piracy, Warhammer+ wouldn't change it.

The issue is between deciding how much money will "advertising" bring compared to a subscription service.
As far as I know, having a regular revenue source is like the fountain of youth for corporations (so much so that McD fucks over it's own machines to get it)

This whole scheme makes or breaks depending on how good wh+KW turns out
>>
>>80447595
>This whole scheme makes or breaks depending on how good wh+KW turns out
People who aren't fammiliar with Warhammer will never pay monthly subscrition for even something like Astartes (not to saying about even lower quality products)
>>
>>80447567
How many of those astartes viewers bought miniatures? & Well knows if they can even compete with 3-D printing in the future. Ironically its the secondaries which are going to save them long term (if 3-D printing becomes viable)
>>
>>80447638
>How many of those astartes viewers bought miniatures?
Doesn't actually matters, even if it were 5 or 10 guys, they still come to Warhammer for free, without GW spending a penny on that.
>>
>>80447595
It can't be that good, they won't HAVE a subscription base large enough to bring in enough revenue to cover the production and shipping cost of the "exclusive subscription models," let alone have enough to fund more content productions.

Netflix initially had a catalog of content curated over decades of broadcast and cable television plus nearly a century of film before they ever started producing their own.
Games Workshop is going to have six in-house animations...
Fuck, CBS can't keep a streaming service afloat on their own, what chance does a fucking Model company have?
>>
>>80447684
No I mean how do you decide which show to pirate?
From it's reviews & general popularity right?
That's the only was I think wh+ makes sense. If it's good enough, it won't need lore videos or other animations to get people interested

But from what we know so far, it's nowhere close to being that good so idk what their plan is
>>
>>80447671
Basically this.
Right now GW doesn't pay for production of animations and lore-videos, it's l;iterally free promotion of their product and they are planning to compete with patreon crowd in terms of money
>>
>>80447742
>No I mean how do you decide which show to pirate?
Just browse Amazon. Netflix catalogue and look for some reviewers sites (yeah including /tv/ as well)

In pretty sure they must've payed Syama more than patreon. & They are capable of that, why the hell would anyone work for them if they don't pay

They did. While they *could* have waved the IP sword over Syama's head, it would be a lot more effective to call the guy and basically tell him "Yo, bro, love your work, what about joining the team and doing it officially for us?" and pay his price to keep him motivated.
>>
>>80433227
YouTube will side with GW, even if the fan vid *IS* covered under fair use. They're corporate toadies through and through and will let them freely abuse their broken-ass DMCA system.
>>
>>80447845
>They did.
They did to one person, by "competing with patreon crowd" I was talking about shitton of low-quality artists, Youtubers and animators, who still makes plenty of money out of crowd
>>
>>80447749
>Right now GW doesn't pay for production of animations and lore-videos, it's l;iterally free promotion of their product and they are planning to compete with patreon crowd in terms of money
Again, actual media production companies are floundering in this market, outfits that have exclusively been doing entertainment for profit for decades are having trouble!!!

And GW wants to tack physical product to the subscription ON TOP OF THAT?!

>>80447793
>In pretty sure they must've payed Syama more than patreon.
That's ONE animator.
You need a handful of those for even a SINGLE small production.

>>80447865
Well yeah, they took the cream of the crop onboard (Syama, Boylan, hopefully they'll take Portoghese in as well) and now they're moving to cut the rest loose.

Based and enlightened take. This is the way.
>>
>>80447922
You're trying to make a point, but I'm not getting it. Let me reiterate mine: they took the people that interested them from the Youtube crowd on board, and now they're moving to impeach the rest. A dick move? Certainly. A smart move? Time will tell. But ultimately it's their IP.
>>
>>80447911
>Well yeah, they took the cream of the crop onboard

They have more than enough whales throwing money at them for that, which is probably the saddest part of it all...
>>
>>80447975
>You're trying to make a point, but I'm not getting it.
My point is you still need a shit ton of manhours to make an animation.
Normally, you'd take your "Cream of the Crop" and have them do storyboarding and key framing, then use sweatshop labor doodlers to fill in the tens of thousands of frames in-between.

>>80448066
>Well good luck in finding audience enough to keep the paychek for them
>>80448136
>They have more than enough whales throwing money at them for that, which is probably the saddest part of it all...
They've got MAYBE enough spare revenue to pay these key animators a semi-living wage, but with them ALONE it will take several YEARS to turn out a single production.
They'd have to go full sweatshop animation to get a single animation done in any reasonable timeframe, and it's questionable they even have the money to do that....
>>
>>80447975
The point was that nearly all Warhammer fan-made animators (just as much as most of Patreon content-makers) works pretty slow, and even if GW takes few best animators these animators alon will never make enough comtent which will justify monthly subscription
>>
>>80448208
>Normally, you'd take your "Cream of the Crop" and have them do storyboarding and key framing, then use sweatshop labor doodlers to fill in the tens of thousands of frames in-between.

More to the point they don't have the spare cash to do it even with the subscription fees.
They're basically keeping these few fan animators on staff for vanity projects, but they're not going to produce content any faster than when they were doing this shit in their spare time anyways, and GW is trying to make a subscription service out of this?
>>
>>80448390
Assuming you're right, it won't change a thing. It won't matter to the whales whether they're paying GW or Patreon a few bucks each month for an animation once in a blue moon.

>Assuming you're right, it won't change a thing. It won't matter to the whales whether they're paying GW or Patreon a few bucks each month for an animation once in a blue moon.
Actually that's the big kicker, with the subscription promising physical product on top of the media content production, GW is going to LOSE money on this venture.
Cartoons and Exclusive Models both don't grown on trees after all, and on top of the production cost the physical product also has to be shipped.
>>
>>80438709
i sent them goatse lol

Eh. As I said above, time will tell. I'm quite certain GW wouldn't have launched the whole WH+ crap without a (seemingly) solid business plan detailing how and how much money it would make them. They simply wouldn't have lasted for close to fifty years otherwise.
>>
>>80448442
>, it won't change a thing.
It will because Patreon =/= streaming service
>>
>>80448685
>They simply wouldn't have lasted for close to fifty years otherwise.
Because they've been able to course correct thanks to a glacial physical sales model, but this isn't a hobby supply pushing game...

>>80448716
>It will because Patreon =/= streaming service
Yeah, again CBS had to fuse back with Viacom to have enough properties to make a competitive streaming service...
>>
>>80446783
Seeing as it's following a spree of them buying up Animators and making them under contract purge their libraries off YouTube, coupled with the fact their shitty paid service comes out next month

Entirely, 100%.
>>
>>80448136
That's not what Whales means.
Unless wh+ has micro transactions for someone to splurge hundreds and hundreds of dollars on, it's literally a monthly sub.
