@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.

Awesome article Patrick. Now if they would drop the price to $20 I will probably pick it up.

Thanks for the help, I was wondering if I was the only one. I will try the different region thing.Thought it was weird that Steam of all places would have trouble with servers. I know they have to do maintenance on them but I wonder why they wouldn't post something in the community about it.

Everything worked fine 3 days ago. Then last night (October 2) I tried loading the game, it started to update game files but stopped at 1% and then got a error for servers being too busy and to try again later with error code (55). I went into game properties and verified game files, 100% completed no errors. I even deleted local content and redownloaded borderlands 2, but still got the same error. I went to steam forums and did what the main sticky told me to do and same error code.

Is anyone else getting this error and does anyone know of a fix? Or should I just post over at Gearbox's forum?
