>Sony has filed a trademark for the term 'Let's Play', according to an entry on the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
>The trademark was discovered by a user on NeoGAF following a registration attempt by Sony Computer Entertainment America last October which, according to the application, is seeking to cover the "electronic transmission and streaming of video games via global and local computer networks; streaming of audio, visual, and audiovisual material via global and local computer networks".
Why do we defend Sony again?
sony is going to execute all lp autists
praise be to sony and may sony have mercy
This, same as when Nintendo did the whole youtube program thing.
People on /v/ bitched about nintendo being evil, but honestly, anything that's the enemy of youtubers is an ally.
Good for Sony.
Only thing is now we're gonna get a million more youtube videos just like when Nintendo tried it about how evil they are, only it'll be Sony. And faggots will eat it up regardless just because some man on their computer screen told them to.
>nintendo tried to fuck youtubers off by not allowing them to make money with Nintendo-owned content
>/v/ claims Nintendo is worse than Stalin
>Sony tries to trademark the words "Let's Play"
It's funny how this board went from "it's okay when nintendo does it" to "it's okay when Sony does it" in less than a year.
>/v/ doesn't know the difference between Trademark and Copyright
>/v/ thinks trademarking a term will stop anything
Do most channels even directly use the term LP anymore?
>sony and nintendo uniting to kill the lets play
>PS3 has free MP and + is for free games
>"HAHAHA GET BTFO XDRONES, SONY WOULD NEVER MAKE US PAY FOR SUCH BASIC FUNCTIONS"
>PS4 has paid MP and +'s games are more and more shit
>"IT'S JUST A FEW DOLLARS WHAT ARE YOU TOO POOR FOR THE DEFINITIVE PLAYSTATION EXPERIENCE?"
>Nintendo monetizes LPs
>"DEMONS, HOW DARE THEY, SONY WOULD NEVER TURN DOWN FREE PROMOTION LIKE THAT"
>Sony wants to copyright LPs
>"BASED SONY PUTTING AN END TO CANCEROUS YOUTUBERS ONCE AND FOR ALL #4THEPLAYERS"
Well shit I've been living a lie.
>"He must be a Nintendrone for not worshipping our glorious Playstation overlords!
Whatever you say, damage control.
i'll try to trademark the term "game" and "video game", so everyone using it shall pay some royalties to the big boss.
