Over the past few weeks, the popular video game music YouTube channel GilvaSunner has been blocked by thousands of copyrights by Nintendo. This resulted in the channel creator having to close last Friday.
While there isn’t much else to be said about the results, there are some theories on social media that the copyright claims aren’t the real deal and don’t actually come from Nintendo. Specifically, one tweet suggested that the statements were “most likely not from Nintendo” and generated more than 23,000 likes.
A verified YouTube account has now responded via Twitter, confirming that it was in fact Nintendo who filed these copyright claims. It was further noted how “these [claims] are all valid and in full compliance with copyright rules”. GilvaSunner also retweeted this confirmation.
“Go ahead – we can confirm that the claims on @GilvaSunner’s channel are from Nintendo. All are valid and fully compliant with copyright rules. If the creator believes the claims are made by mistake, they may dispute …”
That’s it – Nintendo is actually behind the removal of the video game music on GilvaSunner’s channel.
There have been all kinds of Nintendo songs removed from this YouTube channel from series like Super Mario, The Legend of Zelda, Super Smash. Bros, Kirby, Kid Icarus, Mother/EarthBound and Luigi’s Mansion.
