Nintendo Doesn’t Want You Making Money from Their Art

Reviews and gamplay videos are kind of a weird area when it comes to copyright law.  On the one hand the game is technically the company’s intellectual property, on the other you could argue that the gameplay of the game is something of a performance piece.  Nintendo doesn’t see things in such greys and seems…
