You don't own the content in L4D, therefore you cannot monitise

I monotise,its legal,its only an issue if you claim the game is made by you.Technically your video is free advertising for valve so i doubt they would move against you.

Actually how gamers avoid being sued is by joining a game network.

The Creatures for example are part of Machinima. Alot of you're favorite youtube videogamers are all in videogame networks. That is how they get their money and avoid their videos of gameplay from being taken down. I recommend not monetizing your account if you play videogames because if Valve decides to take motion to block your videos then youtube will take every gameplay video down not just tf2, halflife or any other Valve owned content but all gameplays because they won't risk EA or other doing the same like Valve.

So the proper way of making money on Youtube when you're a youtuber who plays videogames and posts them is by joining a gaming network who has the permissions from the gaming companys themselves.
