Perhaps one could also take that as an endorsement from Nintendo. Could they take legal action against you if they are profiting from you? I'd imagine that might make for a different spin on things.
Quote from: Next gen Cowboy on May 17, 2013, 12:20:36 PMI rather like this particular approach, and I think it's a much better way to go about things then simply pulling the video.
Quote from: Next gen Cowboy on May 17, 2013, 07:55:02 PMThe question was "can Nintendo profit from showing rom hacks?" My answer to the question was that I thought it was a better idea than pulling videos that infringed on copyrights. I didn't think we were talking about let's play videos and whatnot. Those videos are subject to whatever copyright laws that they're subject to (not my particular field). Now will companies go overboard? Of course it's bound to happen, and it's a shame, but that's probably where it will go. Edit: Also if (and that's a large if) it doesn't go any further than romhacks, than I think it's a good system. It's a coexistence that will more than likely help both sides, because the person uploading the video in question doesn't have to worry about it being taken down, and the company makes some money off it.
Quote from: Celice on May 17, 2013, 08:39:41 PMIf someone shows a video of how to mod the Wii, for example, does Nintendo now have all the rights to lock out that video, if YouTube's identification service recognizes that a Wii is in the video (primarily, not just for a single shot)?
Quote from: Celice on May 17, 2013, 08:39:41 PMI just happened to notice, aside from this issue, that it could be a bit interesting as far as fan modifications of intellectual property goes, like romhacks for instance, or PC modding.
