Atelier Ayesha Plus is a new entry in a classic-JRPG series with a pretty paintjob, but does the classic formula still hold up?

Posted on 01/12/15
I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

Nintendo Claiming Ad Revenue On YouTube Videos Featuring Its Games

Posted on Thursday, May 16 @ 08:15:00 Eastern 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.

For most fan videos this will not result in any changes, however, for those videos featuring Nintendo-owned content, such as images or audio of a certain length, adverts will now appear at the beginning, next to or at the end of the clips. We continually want our fans to enjoy sharing Nintendo content on Youtube, and that is why, unlike other entertainment companies, we have chosen not to block people using our intellectual property.

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.
