@Marshi I wasn't talking about people wearing cosplay, I'm saying there is an entire industry of people who make money making costumes and accept commissions to create things from IP's all the time, and many of them are not sanctioned or have the permission of the IP holders. It's probably because it close to impossible to police that, but I do think it is in the same spirit as a fan film.

@Araknie I get that nintendo has the right to do this, but 90K and 10 minutes is really not going to make nintendo investors pissed, and the fact is other companies let their fans do this, Check out the fallout kickstarter on youtube. or the elf quest one on indie a go-go. It would have been cool to see this one. Nintendo has a right to do it for sure, it just would have been cool if they didn't.

I'm not sure what the difference is with people making cosplay costumes of IP's and selling them to people versus this? I also see other projects right now on kickstarter that are doing the exact same thing, like "living legeng - a super mario brothers fan film" and a more famous "Fallout:Nuka Break" season 2. They raised $130,000 off of an IP. So this isn't the first and won't be the last. This was really just a fund raiser for the fans to produce content they want to watch. As long as they are not charging people to watch it once it's produced then I don't see the problem. In terms of hurting the brand well that is why it clearly states Nintendo is not affiliated with this. But I doubt a ten minute fan film funded by fans for fans would have done more damage then "The Other M" has. Hopefully the reason they took this down is because they would like to do one on their own.
