Nintendo has set its sights on video game music YouTube channel GilvaSunner (again). Following the channel’s previous copyright claims dating back to 2020, it has now been hit with 1,300 takedowns.
All manner of high-quality Nintendo music has been removed from the channel – ranging from Super Mario soundtracks to Legend of Zelda. It should be noted that GilvaSunner does not monetize these soundtracks. And as we noted earlier, Nintendo has every right to protect its music.
Here’s a post GilvaSunner shared on social media, following a previous batch of teardowns in 2020:
“I see a lot of assumptions made by some of you with extreme words against me. Let me clarify again that I do not monetize videos and do not profit from them. I realize that this does not warrant downloading the content.
“I’m also not angry or surprised that Nintendo is doing this, but I think it’s a little disappointing, there’s hardly any alternative. If Nintendo thinks this is what needs to be done ( to set an example), I’ll let them destroy the channel. It’s their content after all.”
If we hear any developments, we’ll be sure to let you know.
