what?  you mean video recordings?

 

video recording of game play has nothing to do piracy and the only thing your doing illegal is if you display a trademark logo in your video without permission.   and most game makers don't really care because your advertising their game and hopefully increase sales for them.

 

so i don't get what your asking.

Game recording software lets you record anything because it isn't actually recording a game, just recording whatever is on your screen, as far as it is concerned it just captures a copy of each frame that goes to your screen and whatever audio might be coming out of your speakers, it then saves these to a video or live streams them to a website. I don't think we would want to live in a world where recording software first scanned your screen to make sure it approved of what you were about to record, better than it just acts as tool under your control where you take responsibility to use it properly.
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

it piracy for cracking the game and not purchasing it.  Game play recording is not piracy.  like i said earlier displaying a manufacturer logo/trade mark can get you in trouble for displaying intellectual property without permission.  especially if your making money from displaying their logo's.
