Nintendo has announced that they will be pulling the plug on their controversial Nintendo Creators Program near the end of December. In addition, they uploaded a new set of guidelines for video and image sharing, with the primary takeaway allowing full monetization on media such as YouTube Videos and Livestreams.
This is a massive change, as Nintendo was typically known copyright claiming and taking away monetization from various content creators, be they big or small.
Nintendo does still have some guidelines: the content must be transformative, so while content such as Let’s Plays, Reviews and Livestreams are fair game, uploading raw gameplay or reposts of trailers do not fall into the same category. In addition, the game you're making the content for must be officially released.
For more detailed information and a FAQ, you can take a look at their official page for the aforementioned guidelines.
Author's Note: Nintendo's monetization policies have always been a sour-spot for many, including myself, so I’m extremely happy to see Nintendo take a massive step in the right direction. What do you think of these changes? Let us know in the comments!
