Nintendo is in a heady situation: the filtration and distribution of a copy of Super Smash Bros. Ultimately two weeks after her start has a series of rights claims in all types of platforms and diffusal channels.
Previously it corresponds to the announcement of the Creator Program, which takes place in December. However, it is true that Great N has not provided facilities to monitored content and playable material outside of this program on YouTube and other related media. At least hitherto.
Through its official website, Nintendo has offered a guide to a dual purpose: to mark some guidelines in terms of writers and at the same time offer a solution so that any video can be monitored and monitors with their games. Y There are nuances that are being interpreted:
The main thing is that it will lead to users. I mean, Consumers on the individual level of a product (game) of Nintendo. In this way, professional media or other legal entities are derived, which have their own directives and agreements.
On the other hand, the Play's video's and the reviews and analysis of video games are within the scope of & # 39; guidelines. So it is possible to offer content from any Nintendo games and monetize it, including live broadcasts, as long as this signed creative reactions.
It could not be permitted to download and download an existing Nintendo video, as well as play images without any creative contribution of their own, just as it does with a copy of the content sent by another person is made.
The floral copies of promotional camps, tournaments, music soundtracks, games and games and Nintendo art collections are outside the scope of the guidelines.
Opening 'door' to expand or modify the list, the approved monetary channels are the following (in alphabetical order):
- Facebook – by Facebook Gaming Creators, Facebook-level program.
- Niconico Douga / Niconico Live – Through the Niconico Creators program, Niconico Channel.
- OPENREC.tv – by the program OPENREC Creators.
- Twitch – Through the Twitch Affiliate program and the Twitch partner program.
- Twitter – by the program – Amplify Publisher.
- YouTube – by the YouTube-partner program.
In addition, within the above channels, the use of Nintendo licenses for commercial features excludes, and also those that contain official content of Nintendo itself, that have been altered, illegal or unrelated.
An example of 'last' is the mods Super Smash Bros. Melee, or the revisions trick of each game Pokemon, but also the content that was illegal or illegal.
In other words, a content that is the intellectual property of Nintendo and
- Laws of application of laws.
- Nintendo's rights belong to spiritual property.
- Custom features of Nintendo's pirate software.
It's outside this frame, so not only do not meet the requirements to monetize, but it is experimented, depending on the type of content that Nintendo makes a request for withdrawal due to copyright.
