The YouTube gaming community took a blow last year when Nintendo initiated Content ID matches on all videos using their images, thus taking away all those videos’ revenue from their creators and giving it to Nintendo.
Now it seems that Nintendo has had a change of heart. The Japanese gaming company has decided to create an affiliate program with YouTube that would allow content creators to have a piece of the revenue pie.
In a statement released to Game Informer, Nintendo said: “We are preparing an affiliate program in which a portion of the advertising profit is given to the creator. Details about this affiliate program will be announced in the future.”
Sounds like good news for the gaming community — what do you think? Will this let Nintendo out of the dog house?
