Every time we humbled your loyalty and passion for Nintendo games, characters and worlds, and the dignity that you want to express creatively by sharing your original videos and images with our gaming content.
While you follow some basic rules, we do not oppose the use of game materials and / or screenshots taken from games that Nintendo owns the copyrights ("Nintendo Game Content") content you create to create relevant video and image sharing sites.
Here are the precise guidelines.
- You can monetize your videos and channels using the monetization methods you specify separately from Nintendo. Other types of monetization of our intellectual property are not allowed for commercial purposes.
- We encourage you to create videos that include your creative information and comments. Videos and images that contain only copies of Nintendo gaming content without creative input or comments are not allowed. However, you can put game videos and screenshots using Nintendo system features, such as a capture button on the Nintendo lock, without any additional input or comment.
- You are allowed to use officially released Nintendo gaming content or official Nintendo promotional materials (such as product trailers or Nintendo Directs).
- If you want to use the intellectual property of a third party, you are responsible for any necessary third-party access.
- You are not permitted to indicate or claim that your videos are officially linked or sponsored by Nintendo.
