    I thought you didn't need permission. Microsoft allow their games to be posted on YouTube I think.

    The game doesn't belong to microsoft; it belongs to Epic, the original creator. Microsoft allows publishers to put their game on its system only after a complex acceptance process for big-studio game developers.

    Epic has their gameplay/artwork "Terms of Use" disclaimer on their website, which is actually very specific about how/what they want you to say in regard to how/what you do with their IP (intellectual propery). It can be found on Epic's main website easily with a few seconds of using google-fu.

    I checked out the terms of use link on the bottom of the official Gears of War website. It was discussing terms of use as if you were just creating an xbox live account.

    Is this the right link? I'm not looking for anything too complicated here :/ I'm just looking for where it gives permision for people to post videos of Gears on sites like YouTube, that is all I'm looking for.

    As I said earlier, Microsoft is completely separate from Epic's individual website. See their "Fan Art" section for more important guidelines toward observing their legal stuff:

    And for heaven's sake, please do what they tell you; I've already seen like 5 people across the internet get sic'd by Epic's Lawyers (admittedly mostly for bootlegging Epic Merch), but you don't wanna piss 'em off.

    Dude! I'm not going to be in contact with any lawyers lol..I simply do what thousands of other YouTube users do as well, upload Gear of War videos, there's nothing wrong with it & nothing illegal.

    Some of my videos were approved(others not). As long as its you're video you should be fine.
    Make sure you're talking (commentary/just speaking in game.)
    Like it says though youtube gives the final ok whether or not it is allowed to be monetized.
