FRANCIS BREAKS A NINTENDO SWITCH DUE TO COPYRIGHT FLAGS!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w1CfReGFm2s

I can't say this enough, Nintendo is a Company.  I still don't get why people don't understand this.  Youtubers and their fans alike continue to berate Nintendo for their youtube policies like they're the nazis.  Sure, I can see a lot of what nintendo does is similar to the third Reich, they like control, but that does not mean they want to genocide anyone. 

People who make videos about nintendo and  use their images and IP should not be angry for being flagged, just like those who pirate music and movies should not be caught off guard when they get letters telling them to stop.  If you use their IP in any way and expect money, you are no longer a fan.  A fan is someone who does not require or expects monetary compensation.  Once you expect to get money from your videos including Nintendo property, you have entered the business and as expected, you must deal with Nintendo to their accordance. 

Their policy isn't even old, if you were to print out a Tshirt with Nathan drake, you get flagged with a ceast and desist from Sony.  Youtube people have just been self entitled because everyone just lets them do as they please because of free advertisement.  The argument seems to be that because Nintendo takes their revenue, that they're a bad company for it.  In business, it would actually be a good move.  When you're Nintendo and you have countless content creators willing to do your bidding and play your game, while at the same time people who make videos and don't expect to get paid for it(those are the real fans), and choose to implement this kind of policy, it's a good thing for the company.  And Nintendo is not lacking in the free advertisement department.  Do you know how much Switch unboxings there were on youtube before and post Switch release?  There were so much it was begining to be nauseating looking at the same title over and over again, "Nintendo Switch unboxing" by somerandomyoutuberuser.

As a general rule, it's not advisable to compare the position you're defending to Nazi Germany.



Who's Francis?



Proud to be the first cool Nintendo fan ever

Number ONE Zelda fan in the Universe

DKCTF didn't move consoles

Prediction: No Zelda HD for Wii U, quietly moved to the succesor

Predictions for Nintendo NX and Mobile

I haven't watched the video, but I assume it's referring to Boogie2988's gimmick character that gets angry and pissed off very easily.

Easy way to know you've lost an argument before you even started it? Bring up Nazi's,

Welcome to Godwin's law. Ironically named since well it means you lose.
"I wanted folks who glibly compared someone else to Hitler to think a bit harder about the Holocaust""

That said you are 100% wrong.

Youtube is AMAZING advertising. It is free advertising. Nintendo is extremely greedy and fairly disgusting in this regard.

Then again I believe someone once mentioned that Nintendo sued blockbuster to prevent renting? So not surprised.



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

Godwinned before it even started.

Indeed, but I'm not sure if the OP realises that Francis is just a character.

Yeah. This is something I don't get. Youtube is a present powerful platform, yet they barely let people play their games.

 

Guess they are afraid of people playing certain games and giving bad impressions on the ones watching it, translated into less sales. Yet they make great games.

 

Nintendo needs to be more confident in their products and let people play it. It's not like the game will be less good becuase a youtuber played it.

I was being playful.  I'm sure you know that's not a real 1 to 1 comparison.
