Ninty needs to get with the times. TB and many others are bringing in massive revenue to Ninty and only asking for ad revenue in return.

Time to wake up.


They have every right to ask for revenue. It's also up to guys like Machinama to negotiate with Nintendo to get some sort of revenue split between the two.

Doesn't right to fair use in context of review cover this, meaning Nintendo doesn't have the right to do jack about it?

This is a case of them reusing a trailer that Youtube had copyright flagged on it, and the youtube system itself automatically flagging it.

The point is they should of known better if they're "professionally" doing these things. If you had a second clip from anything EA, it'd be flagged like crazy, but I never see people complaining about EA actively pursing youtubers.

so does Nintendo have a right to make 100% profit off of 3 hours of a podcast made by other people, simply because those people had the nerve to promote Nintendo's new gamefor one minute out of 180 minutes?

Kind of makes me wonder exactly how they made all that money in the bank, ya know? Maybe some... shady practices?

Mmmm? Nudge nudge, wink wink? Ehhhh?

well they've been at it for a long time, and always play trailers and oftentimes smaller-scale devs come to them thanking them for the publicity, and their trailers from larger devs have seemed to go unflagged so far. the only one i've heard of flagging them was Squeenix prompting a boycott of all Squeenix publicity from them, in addition to their Sega boycott from the Shining Force incident.

Or they can move to Blip, which is better for making money in the first place, and isn't nearly as trigger-happy with the takedowns. The Nostalgia Critic didn't last very long on The YouTube, but he's got over 200 episodes on Blip (mostly negative reviews, all containing a ton of clips from the movies) and has only one video (The Room) has ever caused a legal dispute.

Depends whether you mean "morally right" or "legally allowed".

Are they morally right to claim all profit from a three-hour video that used their footage? No. Are they legally allowed to? Yes.

big named lets players are tilld oing nintendo gmaes nad not geting flagged


This.

From what I can recall, Nintendo ended up not enforcing said policies actively. I am willing to bet that this incident was caused by YouTube's automatic software.
