None of you are lawyers and some of you aren't even Americans. How do you know the law? Simple: you don't. You probably aren't even familiar with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
Yet, you still have an opinion. Guess what? It's worthless. It means nothing, especially in a court of law.
The only way he doesn't get in trouble is if TTG lets it go. It's probably not worth suing over b/c he is probably broke but they might have it taken down. I can see that.
Anyway, keep giving your worthless non-legal opinion. If he listens then it's his own fault for listening to people no smarter than he when it comes to copyright law and deserves what he gets.
But he got the PERMISSION from telltale, so what the heck is your problem??
And where I live this would go under fair usage and thus is not illegal by law. The EULA does not legally mean shit in most countries with exception of USA.
I think telltale is smart enough to see it more as free advertisment than piracy. If it was not for let's plays, i would never have discovered telltale and their games.
Also there is absolutely no way he can implement the actual gameplay mechanics over youtube.
