The E3/Pax/Comic Con conditions can be seen here and none of them state the above - http://reconxbl.blog...-agreement.html Heck in each of them you HAVE to say you're being given a monetary bonus and who by. From what I've read over the last 24 hours apparently it's a legal requirement.
That is correct. Those agreements required the caster to disclose.
Machinima made the mistake of not having the same clause in this agreement, although they claim that casters were not barred from saying they were part of a promotion.
Looks like we need some lawyers in here to decide if what they say is true or not
The laws in the US now require that any caster in the US must disclose this info, regardless of any agreement. That means that if the casters were not barred from saying this, they will be directly in trouble. However, if its decided that Machinima blocked them from complying with the law, then they will also be liable.
