Since our last message about the Nintendo and/or YouTube Content ID thing hit NeoGAF and GoNintendo (thanks by the way), I'll make another update regarding all of this.

I have seen people thinking it came from Dan Adelman and started to hit him with negative comments. I did not mention the last name to maintain some privacy, but the Dan who sent me the email was not Dan Adelman.
Nintendo is a bigger company than you think, but to continue protecting privacy, all I can say is it was not Adelman, but another person called Dan.

Up to the news, we honestly explained why and how we fund our game projects. Exactly, through YouTube advertising!
The text was pretty specific, so it won't help any non-devs around here, so I won't put it up here.
The same Dan responded to that email today, he acted rather shocked on how lucrative YouTube actually is.
Because of that, he asked us how he could help us.

The only thing we asked was to put our channel (guess its name...) on their whitelist, and resolve all the claims that were already made against us.
After that, he sent us another email asking how to whitelist a YouTube channel.
We called up BroadbandTV, which is our network, they confirmed us the users of YouTube's CMS system can whitelist channels from claims.
When we asked how to do that, they told us to email TGN support, and we are awaiting response as we speak.

Now we hope to give a more positive update really soon, and if so, we really hope it'll be the last one.
To sum the situation up:
The email from yesterday was pretty much a standard reply YouTube would send as well.
Today Nintendo realised what is actually happening.
We do not guarantee they will help you too, I'm sure they help us because we are actually affiliated with Nintendo (we are 3rd party indie game developers, making games for the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U systems, remember?).

Stay strong, fellow YouTubers!
