    What i mean is is it legal to record my own videogames non-profit without uploading online?

    Based on the law:

    Derivative Works Edit
    According to Section 173.2 of the Intellectual Property Code,[4] derivative works are defined as new work provided that they do not violate any subsisting copyright upon the original work employed or any part thereof, or to imply any right to such use of the original works, or to secure or extend copyright in such original works.

    So does it mean if i record an small portion of a videogames like 30secs then edit it without uploading though. Is it considered derivative works?

    Did the Philippines join the Trans Pacific Partnership? If yes, then other countries copyright laws do apply to you. If no, random world laws probably have no bearing on you. Your country needs to have international treaties specifically bringing that stuff in, and most international treaties are ancient and don't reflect modern copyright issues.

    Use only one thread for all your legal related questions, no need to create 3 of them...

    People have recorded/streamed full games on Youtube and other video sites without much trouble. I don't think you'll run into any legal problems just recording some gameplay and putting it on a video hosting site. I mean if you're not going to put it online, you can pretty much record whatever you want. Most game companies don't have a problem with gaming footage being uploaded to video hosting sites, its really just free advertising for them.
