Nintendo has updated its Creators Program’s rules to add a new entry: members can no longer broadcast on YouTube Live. The gaming titan has long been extra protective of its properties and regularly issues takedown notices for videos that use its games. It launched the initiative in 2015 as a sort of a compromise with YouTubers who feature its IPs. The program gives streamers a way to get part of their Nintendo videos’ ad revenue, but it looks like the company doesn’t want people earning money for livestreaming their playthroughs.
