A Youtube channel that broadcasts music from Nintendo games has been attacked by the Japanese company. Thus, nearly 4,000 complaints have been filed, and as many videos deleted.
Nintendo and copyright is a long love story. The latest development concerns the Youtube channel of GilvaSunner, which brings together many music from the games of the Kyoto firm. The latter tackled his case, filing nearly 4,000 complaints with Google.
For Nintendo fans, there is no way to listen to music from their favorite games using official channels. The Japanese firm does not broadcast them, either on Youtube or on streaming services like Spotify. So some fans decide to do the job themselves… which Nintendo strongly dislikes.
Nintendo attacks a fan chain
GilvaSunner indeed maintains a Youtube channel on which it brings together all the music from the studio’s games. Important clarification: it does not monetize these videos, since it seeks above all to please the community of fans.

But that, Nintendo does not admit. The brand has thus filed more than 4000 complaints, deleting all the videos. A first summons had been made on January 31 with 1300 complaints, but Nintendo did not stop there and added others. A last salvo which will have the skin of the chain. Gilvasunner thus confided that he was throwing in the towel. It is indeed useless to continue to fight with its small means.
Nintendo is quite within its rights by requesting the withdrawal of these videos, but what raises questions here is his behavior towards his own fans who just want to enjoy his creations. GilvaSunner had already been targeted a year ago and explained that he was not angry with the company. However, he expressed his disappointment at the lack of alternatives offered. Today, only fans allow other fans to listen to game music and Nintendo only hinders them.
Nintendo is accustomed to the fact, since not long ago, it was a parody of the last Pokémon that was in its sights.
Hi everyone, after the 1300 copyright blocks from Nintendo a few days ago, the YT channel received another 2200 blocks today (with likely many more to follow).
