As much as we here at TGPZ love Nintendo, it has not always been the friendliest company towards online content creators. Nintendo is rather infamous for its efforts to take down just about any kind of content that includes its copyrighted work. However, it appears that Nintendo is shifting direction and aiming to become a little more creator-friendly. The company announced that it is lifting some of its restrictions on how creators use Nintendo products. Going hand in hand with this policy shift, Nintendo is also shuttering the Nintendo Creators Program at the end of the year.
This is great news for content creators who use sites such as YouTube to monetize their efforts. Creators will now have a little less concern that Nintendo will launch DCMA takedowns or seize money earned by creators. You can read Nintendo’s announcement in its entirety here.
