Weird week. But don’t take my word for it – let’s go!
Nintendo Sweeps YouTube With Content ID Claims
The biggest piece of news this week was definitely this. Nintendo has used their Partner status on YouTube to set Content ID matches for all of their content. Rather than taking the stuff down, however, the videos get ads placed on them, which will pay money to Nintendo. When asked for a statement, Nintendo painted themselves as the good guy, saying that they chose to do this to make sure their content is shared in a responsible manner and chose to not take down the videos unlike many other companies so people would still have the ability to share this content. In other news: Nintendo enters partnership with Sega, The World God Only Knows 3 to skip to the goddess arc, BlazBlue anime green-lit.
