  1. Nintendo COULD claim copyright infringement, but then the uploader would simply have to explain to them that they’re protected under the fair use policy, and YouTube would eventually put the video back up again.

    In my opinion this is kind of dumb. The Let’s Players are effectively giving Nintendo free advertising whenever they upload a video featuring one of their games. But now that they’re forcing adverts on these videos without permission from the YouTuber, chances are a lot of content creators are just gonna avoid making videos on Nintendo games in future. Nintendo just shot themselves in the foot over what is essentially just a bit of advertising space.

  2. Two words: bull,shut.
    Fuck off Nintendo, don’t steal all YouTubers money. What if someone is stuck on a certain level? Your making a truckload harder for some gamer to a little piece of help. like what the narrator says in The Stanley Parable, “You heartless bastard”
