I have not played Grand Theft Auto 5, though the point is more about how uninformed the local media near me are about this type of entertainment. They did not seem to put much research into developing this article and diving deeper into both sides.

The article in question is this.

After reading it all I could do is shake my head when I read the story. Being a new parent has made me think about how I would react if my kid wanted to play violent games in general. My wife and I had a talk about which type of media our son would be consuming as he gets older, and what would be ok and not ok for him to consume. As of right now I see other forms of media (ie TV, movies) to be more 'harmful' than video games. This seems off to me because those other forms of media are not given the same treatment as GTA5 or video games in general are getting.

I am sorry for my rant but I thought I would just like to share.

Also here is a link to other local people commenting on the story.

Has anyone else's local news done any reporting?

I can't stop laughing at the amazing content Ryan has made over the years, but I also can't stop tearing up inside that he is gone.

@crazyleaves: It does seem counter productive because now you will have to pay in order to use video of their product.

So there might be 5 second bumper before or after videos now?

Also rule #3:

'Except as described here, you can't sell or otherwise earn any compensation from your Item, including through advertisements in the Item. This means you can't charge money in exchange for your Item, post it on a site that requires subscription or other fees to view the Item, or post it on a page you use to sell other items or services(even if they have nothing to do with Game Content or Microsoft). You also can't use Game Content in an app that you sell in an app store.'

Rule #4

'You may post your Item to a page or website that has advertising, but only if you do not earn any money from that advertising. For example, if you post your video on Youtube or Vimeo and there happens to be an advertisement next to it, then as long as you don't get paid for that advertisement, the fact that there is an advertisement on the page doesn't break these Rules. But enrolling in the Youtube partner program (or other similar programs), where you are entering into an agreement to get paid, is not allowed. On a similar note, if you create and distribute a free app, then you can't earn any money from advertising in that app.'

Rule #5

'Where someone is trying to use Game Content to promote their commercial venture (even just a commercial website), they need our permission to do this. For example, "promoting a commercial venture" includes someone else enrolling in the Youtube partner program and making money distributing your Items. That is not allowed today unless that person has a commercial license from us, and so far, we haven't given anyone permission to do this. We'll let you know if we do.'

Interesting wording they use on some of those rules.
