Amplitude StudiosYou may run ads or other revenue streams that don’t interfere with a user’s access to the video, subject to the “No Licensing” guideline below.http://www.amplitude-studios.com/FAQ/Legal-Stuffhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Endless_Space20/11/2013They have a lot of small rules in here, recommend you read the text in full.

BlizzardThe only exceptions to this rule are if you participate in partner programs with YouTube, Justin.tv, Blip.tv, Own3d.tv, or Ustream.tv (the "Production Websites") whereby a Production Website may pay you for views of a Production if you are accepted into their partner program.http://us.blizzard.com/en-us/company/legal/videopolicy.htmlhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blizzard_Entertainment#Titles16/02/2013Only applies to videos hosted on YouTube, Justin.tv, Blip.tv, Own3d.tv, Ustream.tv

Edmung McMillen (Team Meat)i Edmund McMillen to here by allow anyone in the world to post video of any project ive made to youtube and monetize it as they wish!http://www.formspring.me/EdmundM/q/426167225297162040http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edmund_McMillen18/05/2013Only applies to videos hosted on YouTube. Due to the wording it appears to apply to what Edmund McMillen has worked on, but as many of his older projects involved teams he is no longer a part of so his ability to make this judgement could be debated.

MojangYou may make money using your videos of our Game so, for instance by putting ads on them, as long as you also add your own unique content to the video, such as audio commentary. The amount you add must also be enough to make it fair and worthwhile for someone to pay for it or for you to make money from it. For example you couldn‘t just include your logo, web address or indent but you could add an audio commentary or your own music if you are creating a music video.https://account.mojang.com/termshttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mojang#Games16/02/2013

Paradox InteractiveWe permit third-party use and monetization of things like "Let's Play" Videos under the restriction that it is clear that Paradox Interactive is the copyright holder of any material shown.http://www.youtube.com/user/Paradoxplazahttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paradox_Development_Studio#List_of_video_games16/02/2013I am only linking here to the games developed by Paradox as I am unsure if this applies to games only published by Paradox Interactive, and suspect it does not (as the actual developers probably keep the rights to the content).

Riot GamesYou may run ads or other revenue streams that don’t interfere with a user’s access to the video, subject to the “No Licensing” guideline below. . . . Generally, you cannot license your videos to any third party for a fee or other value without our approval. However, there are important exceptions: Partner programs with YouTube or the following streaming websites: own3D.tv, Ustream.tv,Twitch.tv, Justin.tv, Blip.tv (no prior permission from us required).http://www.riotgames.com/company/legal-jibber-jabberhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Riot_Games#Games16/02/2013Only applies to videos hosted on YouTube, Justin.tv, Blip.tv, Own3d.tv, Ustream.tv

ValveYou are free to monetize your videos via the YouTube partner program and similar programs on other video sharing sites. Please don't ask us to write YouTube and tell them its fine with us to post a particular video using Valve content. It's not possible to respond to each such request. Point them to this page.

Of course this policy applies only to Valve content. If you include someone else's content in your video, such as music, you will have to get permission from the owner.
