Unfortunately this is a very frustrating thing about recorded and captured art or content that involves intellectual property, and I wonder at the legal strength of these claims.

Consider the following strange copyright issues:
  • If someone takes a photograph of you, THEY own the copyright of that photograph. The person whose image was taken has no rights.
    • This is true even if you paid for said photographs, eg in the case of wedding photos and graduation photos.
    • This is true even if you wish to buy your wedding photos from a photographer, they often only release the license for you to use the photos. Some photographers for instance do not allow you manipulate the photos, and they can limit your printing rights.
  • If you take a photograph of intellectual property, depending on fair use, it may be an infringement of copyright.
    • This could be true even if the intellectual property is not the main subject of the photo.
The idea of fair use comes into play here. I'd argue (and hopefully the law would see fit to agree) that fair use of video game intellectual property would include the ability to make speedruns, walkthroughs, video clips, mashups, etc without copyright infringement since individually they only show a small fragment of the larger work (eg a few minutes out of dozens or hundreds of hours of gameplay).

I'm curious to see what the Let's Players, Speed runners and critics, among others will have to say about this. Will be keeping my eyes on Twitter and such going forward to see what they have to say.

Nintendo basically charges money to people who want to talk about and show off their products for them. Meanwhile Nintendo sales plummet.
Begging for money from YouTube partners is not going to restore faith in Nintendo stocks. Lol.

Nintendo, failing to realize that youtube/twitch is great for promotion. Sony, understanding that youtube/twitch is great for promotion.

i know, it only makes them look desperate, like they are in far more deep financial doo-doo than they are letting on, this is not the way to get money...

they need to get this stupid stubborn pride out of their heads and allow 3rd party developers for a start, they aren't even counted by most gamers anymore, which is a real shame.

They used to be king of the console world, Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Final Fantasy, Mega Man, Metal Gear, these are just some examples of the Nintendo Legacy, many of our favorite games where orignaly (some of them ONLY) exsisted on a nintendo console, saddly those days are long gone..

which is sad, to see what used to be a great company reduced what is basically begging, instead of focusing on the REAL problems.

This. This this and more this. There's so many great games out there that would've been amazing on the Wii U.

You said it Night Surgeon; why some of the best games out there that get released on multiple consoles fail to be released on the Wii U really baffles me.

Because the Wii U is garbage, with a crappy tablet looking control..Why would i get a game for the Wii u when my Ps4/Xbox one/Ps3/or 360 play it better, and the controllers are smaller and more comfortable?
