Hello ladies and Gentlemen, Chris Stollings for another video news story, this time its “Video News: Nintendo vs. YouTube”… Nintendo is at it again on YouTube, this time they are going after ROM hack videos and videos of Tool-Assisted Speedruns, check out the video here.

About Chris Stollings

Chris is a 28 year old gamer who joined Operation Rainfall in the fall of 2012. When he’s not writing articles or working on video content for Rainfall, he spends his time creating Let’s Plays for his personal Youtube channel, and filling in the last few missing titles of his vast (in his mind) game collection, prefering RPG’s but wont turn down a title of another genre if it looks interesting.

    I think some of this is definitely an issue of laws needing to be updated to reflect modern technology. Like you said, they have a legal right to do what they did, but the laws are also not up to date.

    • Chris Stollings

      Yeah, the laws that state you *have* to go after anything that can even remotely be perceived as infringement or else you lose the rights, its very harsh and can be overly litigious. So I understand why Nintendo has to, it just sucks that they have to

      I have no sympathy for that argument anyway. The entertainment industry says “What can we do, our hands are tied here!”

      Who do you think WROTE those laws, and then just sent off to Congress to be rubber-stamped?

  • Wolfe

    Oh no, people are watching other people play games on Youtubes, better slap ’em with a cease and desist to prove how uptight we are.
    Eat a dick, Nintendo.

      They should put the videos on YouTube Gaming not YouTube

  • Superr Mann

    That’s stupid
    I would never take my videos down if Nintendo issued me a letter

  • Superr Mann

    I have 1000s of Roms and so many emulators and over $10,000 in software I got for free
