    He has a point though.....

    If he didn't want to be "Bound Perpetually" to Machinima He shouldn't have signed the contract

    Do you read all your EULA's on the installers? Also this isn't me, it's a small YouTube partner.

    Yes I read the terms to everything I sign up to.

    Of course not facebook, gmail etc, but everything which could catch you out.

    I was thinking of the exact same analogy.

    Next bot I make I'm going to add in the license that this software is "perpetually binding" to your computer, and that it can never be uninstalled.

    tell them go shove their contract up their arse dude just go and do what you want to this is the internet you say youtube said " they cant bind you to a contract?" maybe if you are correct then take it up with youtube because they are braking youtube's rules by forcing you to stay?

    I dont know but if i wanted to stream on JTV or what ever its called now? id just go and do it.

    I heard woodysgamerfag was paid $40,000 to leave twitch and stream on youtube now that i can understand in a contract but what obligation have you got to them? you make videos they get watched = you get paid did they give you an up front sum of money like woody? if not FQUK um

    They won't take action. That would be a horrible PR move on their side, even if it was stated in their contract. Good thing such strangling contracts are outlawed here in Holland

    If youtubes rules state you cannot keep someone locked, then aren't they breaking the rules? I dunno, it sounds kinda fishy.

    EULA/TOS aren't contractually binding i don't think
