YouTube Help: YouTube Partner Program overview

YouTube Restricts Externally Linking End Cards To Members Of Its Partner Program

This doesn't completely prevent a YouTuber from monetizing their videos, but they will then have to manually request Nintendo's approval for each individual video they publish. So Nintendo has decided that live streaming Nintendo gameplay counts under their policies.

A screenshot of an email began circulating in the NeoGAF forums late Thursday evening. They came to Patreon, the micro-sponsorship platform that allows these creators to recover part of that loss, and in the process eliminate monetization on YouTube with a form of "revenge".

You can keep uploading original content and building your audience on YouTube even if you're not in the partner program-and you can reapply again in 30 days. It's also unclear if Nintendo has similar rules for those live streaming Nintendo-copyrighted content on other sites such as Twitch. You can not broadcast content on YouTube Live from the account you have registered to the Nintendo Creators Program. "Videos which had previously been registered through your channel would need to be reregistered individually". The video must reach 10,000 views before that option is available. If a creator wishes to do a livestream with a Nintendo game, they will have to do so from a channel not approved by the Program. Meaning that this way, Nintendo will get all of the revenue the video makes. "Additionally channels do not have to actually monetize any videos as part of this requirement", YouTube wrote via statement.

While streaming can be a beneficial way for developers to generate interest in their games, not all game makers are keen on seeing streamers or YouTubers make bank on the backs of their releases. This is most likely in direct response to the recent controversy regarding certain famous influencers like PewDiePie.

The Emperor issues his final command in Star Wars Battlefront II clip
As one of the most requested fan modes, galactic-scale space combat is also brought to life in Star Wars Battlefront II . Outlined in Star Wars Shattered Empire and Star Wars Aftermath, the Contingency punishes Empire and Rebellion alike.

It's possible that Nintendo is trying to avoid a similar situation that could involve one of its games.

Popular YouTube creator Hank Green also announced he would be looking into the matter.

Russell said he expects to depend more on his own Patreon and other diversified income streams like mobile apps going forward.
