Nintendo Makes It Harder To Live Stream On Youtube


Quote:
Last night, Nintendo sent out an email to participants of its Youtube monetization program, Nintendo Creators. The email outlined Nintendo's new policy on live streaming their games on Youtube, banning it for monetization, and perhaps banning it outright.

Nintendo Creators Program was created as a response to Nintendo demonetizing all videos for Nintendo-published games on Youtube. The program enrolls Youtubers to share their ad revenue with Nintendo, providing that they comply with Nintendo's content guidelines, which demands restrictions on profanity, among other things. This is not just for Let's Plays of Nintendo games, but also things like footage used in video reviews or analysis. By and large, it is not a popular program.

The new policy reads like this:

"Live streaming on YouTube falls outside the scope of the Nintendo Creators Program. This means that you cannot broadcast content on YouTube Live from the account you have registered to the Nintendo Creators Program."

It's a STUPIDO!

My goodness, we can't have excited fans and hobbyists earning a few dollars from ads while ADVERTISING YOUR PRODUCT FOR YOU. Nope, nope, nope.

It's a STUPIDO!

Its time for the courts to decide what is fair use. I think a lot of people are scared but I think the way things are going there should be some legal decision otherwise its just about Nintendo being a seemingly "dicks" for protecting their ip the way they feel and everyone else understanding the value of streaming.

It is very unlikely that streaming will fall under fair use. Mystery science theater isn't fair use and the line between that and streaming a video game is pretty thin. Literally 80% of the screen is showing copyrighted content at all times during these videos.

It would be bizarre if it was fair use because including the music used in the video game in the stream wouldn't be, so why would the rest be fair use?

MST3K either uses films that have copy rights that have expired, or they have got permission to use.

Quote:
Some licensing required buying film rights in packages, with the selected bad movies included in a catalog of otherwise good films, making the negotiations odd since the network was only interested in the bad film. Other times, the rights to the film were poorly documented, and the network would follow the chain of custody to locate the copyright owner as to secure broadcast rights.[5]
