Posting Video Footage of Betas - What's the Risk?

Has anyone researched the risk of posting videos of unreleased games/early prototypes of games? I have a great deal, but I'd like to hang onto them also ;) Don't want to post and I get a letter asking for something back. All of these were purchased on forums/eBay.

Risk in terms of what? Legality is rarely an issue, but it *can* happen that companies get on the defensive about it.

If you are talking current gen stuff then companies might get touchy. But minus that I’ve literally never heard of a company suing anyone at all. Worse is they might ask youtube to take it down due to copyright, but I doubt even that.

Post away!

Cool. I had a bunch of videos up at one point, but that just let to an endless amount of message with people asking me to "send them the iso". I will work on getting some newer videos posted now that I have the better hardware that will allow a lot better image quality. I have a lot of unseen prototypes :D

As long as it's backed up somewhere, wherever it may be, that's good enough for me

As others said though, make sure it's properly backed up. You don't have to share the files, but it'd be a shame for some unique content to rot away.

Providing video content of rare stuff is a great and worthy contribution.

This is always key. As long as you've done that, then you're golden.

Looking forward to seeing what you have, Fusion!
