The premise is simple... He believes he contribute to Nintendo marketing and selling of games and as such he should be allowed to have full claim of the ad revenue he collects on Youtube. And bashes Nintendo to ask for a part of the pie or to demand channel to be closed. Says Nintendo will lose even more contact with their fanbase, they will lose sales by him not playing their games and a lot of other silly things.

 

His premise is as wrong as Nintendo owns the IP and invested they are the sole entity that can/should decide what to do about their IPs, and in any market if you want to use someones brand (even more if you are profiting from it) you have to pay for it.

What do you guys think?

Mr Puggsly: "Hehe, I said good profit. You said big profit. Frankly, not losing money is what I meant by good. Don't get hung up on semantics"
