Nintendo Claiming Ad Revenue On YouTube Videos Featuring Its Games
Posted on Thursday, May 16 @ 08:15:00 PST by Alex_Osborn
It looks like Nintendo is enforcing copyright on YouTube guys and gals who upload Let's Play videos (and the like) featuring the company's games.
While the Big N doesn't want to block users from putting up such content, it does want to collect ad revenue from those videos that would otherwise go to the one who uploaded the media. To get a better idea of what Nintendo plans to do, check out this statement that was send to GameFront:
As part of our on-going push to ensure Nintendo content is shared across social media channels in an appropriate and safe way, we became a Youtube partner and as such in February 2013 we registered our copyright content in the Youtube database.Do you take issue with this move by Nintendo, or do they have every right to do this since the content is coming from their software? Be sure to sound off in the comments below and let us know what you think.
