Topic: Youtube Thinks Nintendo Can Do Better

Posts 1 to 6 of 6


Just go to the link and what is your thoughts on it? In my opinion its way out of hand. Heres what youtube said “They’re spending a lot of time looking at how to engage their creation community and how to handle monetization. [YouTubers] are able to livestream Nintendo content and monetize through our non-ad products. That’s a better question served to them for what they want to do in the future, but I think there are ways to better improve and better optimize how they work with the creators.

Personally, I think YouTube needs to shoulder this themselves.

How about SEGA and how they handled Persona 5? Other companies like WWE over the WWE games?

Content ID is very loose, and it's also YouTube's baby. If that was refined, or rules that were actually, you know, defining fair use and all that crap properly (Which will never happen as no one wants to be the legal precedent despite there now being a very big need for one to be set) put into effect, YouTube would stop enabling this kind of practice.

And on that note, YouTube. Seriously. You are the pot calling the kettle black while throwing stones in a glass house.

YouTube is in absolutely NO position to sit on a soapbox and tell other companies how to treat content creators with the way it's acting lately. Actually, I've been struck by other companies, and this damn demonetisation trend, far more than Nintendo EVER has hit me, and I cover Nintendo extensively.

For extra comedy, I've seen Sony Music take down episodes of Xenoblade Chronicles X or soundtrack pieces, not with content ID, but strikes against the channel.

Frankly, this is a problem bigger than Nintendo. Nintendo is shockingly soft compared to the strikes handed out by SEGA and Sony. But before any of that can be dealt with, YouTube needs to learn how to treat it's own creators right.

Pretty sure part of it is Youtube's stupid auto-claim system thingy. As for Nintendo, I kinda see why they don't want people making money off of their stuff, but at the same time...We're basically advertising their games for them. And the whole thing is causing stupid Youtube drama, some favorite Youtubers I love are avoiding Nintendo games because of this, it's annoying.
(at least Jacksepticeye is ignoring it and playing Mario Odyssey anyways, lol)

Keep it PG-13-ish.



Please, please just add at least a short excerpt from the article so the people here can have enough context to join the discussion without having to go outside the site.

We've gone through this.
