How is Nintendo not allowing streamers to use their games & make money off of it without Nintendos permission a controversy ? It is Nintendos right to not allow this

Well, the Nintendo Creators Program was created so content creators could create content featuring Nintendo's games and still earn a small percentage of ad revenues (Nintendo pockets the rest). What's the point of a "Creators" Program if they restrict people from creating content via live stream? Does Nintendo prefer not making any money via ad revenues as opposed to pocketing a majority of the revenue from a stream?

Most people use Adblockers now that block ads on sites like Youtube thats kind of a mute point. So what does Nintendo gain when most block ads & never see them ?

Why have the Nintendo Creators Program then?

Why are people still complaining about this like the idiots in the video if thats what the Creators Program is for ? Why are people still turning this into an issue if they have The Creators Program ? Is it because they dont wanna share earnings with Nintendo or something ?

"Why are people still turning this into an issue if they have The Creators Program ? Is it because they dont wanna share earnings with Nintendo or something ?"

The issue is the Creators Program was Nintendo's way of saying "Fine, create content. We get a majority of the ad revenues, and you'll get a fraction"

But now, people who want to live stream (who have accepted Nintendo's policy) can't because of poorly explain reasoning. Nintendo won't allow content creators (who earn Nintendo ad revenue) live stream. It's literally Nintendo saying "we don't want the money". It has nothing to do with content creators not wanting to share money, because they already agreed to share it by joining the Nintendo Creators Program in the first place. I'm curious as to why your so defensive for Nintendo when they themselves haven't explained why they're doing this.

Why should Nintendo or any company allow people to make money off of their employees work & without their permission ? Its understandable why Nintendo is not allowing this. Im curious why people dont understand this simple fact & its not helping Nintendo either when people put the full game online as well in the form of cutscenes, walkthroughs etc

I'll ask again....why did Nintendo create the Nintendo Creators Program...if they don't want people streaming and creating content featuring their games? Nintendo isn't helping themselves by starting programs like this then are they?

It is any company's right to not want people making money off of THEIR PRODUCTS & Nintendo did make it & its still not enough. People need to from this as all companies like Nintendo have their rights as well
