Curse and Athene partner up to bring Union for Gamers

Today, Curse and YouTube veteran producer and World of Warcraft personality Athene partner up to bring innovation and freedom to YouTube channels, big and small. Together, Curse and Athene are proud to unveil the Union for Gamers project, an innovative and open way for YouTube producers to get fair partnerships that focus on letting the producer keep their rights and get the best possible deal.

Unlike the majority of current partner offerings that put all the rights and benefits in the hands of the large organizations, Union for Gamers will allow YouTube producers, directors and content creators to get the best possible deal when partnering up. This is very different from the previous contracts, and the focus has been put on making a user-friendly, honest and fair agreement:

  • No exclusivity - Your content stays yours, and you're not bound to Curse or YouTube in any exclusive agreement. Your creative freedom stays yours.
  • No confidentiality - The contract is open and honest, and you're free to share the contract terms with others and discuss it. The contract is available to everyone to look at at the Union for Gamers site.
  • No lock-in - Unlike most current contracts, you're free to leave at any time. You're no longer tied in for an absurd lengths of time with a single organization.
  • $3 CPM - This is one of the highest pay scales you can possibly get, higher than what many top YouTube channels get paid now.

Curse and Athene are excited to change the way YouTube partnerships work and encourage anyone who is a YouTube partner or a fan of any YouTube channel to visit http://www.unionforgamers.com/ to learn all about this initiative.

Thing is will they pay on time/partner you quick and give support like machininma ?
I remeber TGN with their 3month partnership ques and lots of people complaining about late payment while at machininma everything is done so fast.
Looks realy sick tbh if they can pull it off though.Just looks a little too good to be true :S
