It has Nintendo discovered he will close his controversial creator program later this year. The program's website will also be closed on March 20, 2019.
Replacement programs are new guidelines that aim to make it easier for creators to monetize their Nintendo videos. They will also no longer have to submit their content to the NCP. These new guidelines are posted on the Japanese website. Nintendo also included a short message, reiterating that content creators are required to comply with several basic rules:
We are humiliated daily by your loyalty and passion for Nintendo games, characters and worlds and respect that you want to creatively express by sharing your own original videos and images using content from our games.
As long as you follow some basic rules, we will not oppose your use of videos and / or screenshots taken from games for which Nintendo has copyright ("Nintendo Game Content") in the content that you create for the appropriate sharing of videos and site images.
Here are the correct guidelines:
- You can monetize your videos and channels using monetization methods specifically specified by Nintendo. Other forms of monetization of our intellectual property for commercial purposes are not allowed.
- We invite you to create videos that include your creative input and comments. Videos and images that contain only copies of Nintendo Game content without any creative input or comment are not allowed. However, you can also publish video games and screens with Nintendo system features, such as the Nintendo Switch button, without any additional input or comment.
- You are only allowed to use the Nintendo Game Content that has been officially released, or from promotional materials that Nintendo officially announces (such as a product store or Nintendo Directs).
- If you want to use third-party intellectual property, you are responsible for obtaining the necessary third-party permissions.
- You did not allow us to implicate or declare that your videos are officially connected to Nintendo or sponsored.
- We reserve the right to remove all content that we think are illegal, harmed, inappropriate, or inconsistent with these instructions.
Below this list was a brief message explaining how the guidelines will be updated if necessary:
Please understand that we will not be able to answer individual questions regarding these instructions. We can also update these guidelines from time to time, so check out the latest version before sharing the content.
There is often a question that you can read, helping to clarify these new guidelines. We can only hope that relations between Nintendo and content creators will improve from this point on.
