YouTube Blocking Creators from Linking to Patreon Unless Channel Monetized

Nintendo Restricts Livestreaming of Their Games on You Tube for Partners YouTube Restricts Externally-Linking End Cards (Include Those To Patreon) To Members Of Its Partner Program

An image sent out by Nintendo's Creator Program was being shared around the internet Thursday night that went over changes to their program, specifically in regards to how they will handle live streams going forward.

"Live streaming on YouTube falls outside the scope of the Nintendo Creators Program". Of course, it isn't stopping YouTubers from live broadcasting entirely, but is instead telling them that they can't broadcast content on YouTube Live from the channel that they've registered with the game company's creators program.

Not only has the platform cut down on content like swearing, it has also come under fire for demonetising innocent LGBT+ content. Creators have also complained that queries to YouTube on why specific videos were demonetised can often be left unanswered.

Unfortunately, a new restriction has begun for those involved in the Creators Program.

A copy of the email recently surfaced on the NeoGAF forums; it advises users that the User Guide was updated to change the ways that revenue is generated for YouTube livestreamed broadcasts. If you want more info on the Nintendo Creators Program, you can find it here. The discovery of this new change wasn't immediately communicated to creators.

YouTube has tightened its rules over linking to external sites.

"If you plan to broadcast content on YouTube Live, you have a couple of options". You can check your channel's view count at Creator Studio Channel Monetization. "Videos which had previously been registered through your channel would need to be reregistered individually".

"Thank you for your ongoing support of the Nintendo Creators Program". Meaning that this way, Nintendo will get all of the revenue the video makes.

While streaming can be a beneficial way for developers to generate interest in their games, not all game makers are keen on seeing streamers or YouTubers make bank on the backs of their releases. It's being speculated that this might have been Nintendo's response to the recent controversy involving Felix Kjellberg (PewDiePie), as pointed out by Game Rant.
