    Good old asshole, Nintendo.
    I was expecting it, though.

    Nonetheless, hope this shades the light to more people out there to realize just the pieces of fucking shit Nintendo really is and more stop supporting their bullshit ;)

    well i guess other companies now have rights, based on these precedents.

    you play guitar on a Gibson? Gibson owns that music now
    you make food with kitchen aid products? they now own your video where you made food with their products
    used a snap-on wrench in that car fix video? you just put money in snap-ons pocket, they own it
    oh you edited that video on windows? Bill Gates owns it now.


    seriously where does the line end here? he made a one time, $50 purchase with no legal or financial ramifications for future purchases. legally, they own the hardware now, they are "free" to do what they want with it.

    I will never understand why companies don't like you modifying their product that YOU bought.

    Hey Nintendo, these people PAID for their hardware, it is their PROPERTY now. If they want to let their dog poop on it, while recording, that is their soverign right.

    Why the hell is everyone acting all authoritarian lately anyhow?!?

    that is not the argument here.
    the music, characters, scenarios etc of nintendo games are their property.
    based on that, their aggressive us lawyers file claim after claim.
    'nintendo' likely doesn't know what exactly they're doing here and they don't care much either. 'protect the copyrights and combat piracy' os probably the only directive they've ever sent across the pond.
    the lawyers appear effective enough, so they keep getting paid and keep doing what they do.


    like jesus, what's with all the 12 year old logic under each and every news post like this? ultimately, what they're enabling there isn't allowed. they could turn these things into nightlamps and no one would care. you enable roms on them which 99.9% are not self-dumped,you're not gonna keep your video when the lawyers get wind of it.

    If I had one I'd heavily modify it with a hammer, just to make a point...

    just don't show you playing illegal games just showcase homebrew then you (may) have some ground to dispute crs's

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    dmca is utter bullshit they NEED to overhaul it to make hacking/homebrew (legal) allowed as it stands now they can even sue you for legit repair service (might be different soon)

    Wow you are discussing this topic - lol late but youtube has become a major dictating hitler at this point, - they will call anything they deem "bad" - and remove it off of youtube, it has happened to a homebrew youtuber i subscribed to, and others as well.

    shites gone wack

    It’s quite simple, they want to have full control of what you do with their products, that’s why things are going all digital nowadays.

    It’s been known for a long time that circumvention of systems have always been against Nintendo’s rules on content that is uploaded to YouTube/Twitch.

    Before, during and after the Nintendo Partner Program started/ended as well.

    Ah yes, Nintendo, being the overly-litigious IP defending pantywaists as always. Shocking.

    Could buy used games so they don't get the profits :creep:
