Nintendo continues to attack its fans, because on this occasion it seems that they made more than 500 copyright claims on YouTube videos of Deoxys Prime, known for uploading video game soundtracks to his channel. However, the owner of the channel says that he is not going to close his channel, as happened with other youtubers who went through similar situations.
DeoxysPrime is a Canadian user who uploads video game soundtracks to his YouTube channel, with more than 165,000 subscribers. This Tuesday, the youtuber announced that he is going to withdraw all Nintendo music from his channel, because “it is very clear that they don’t want their music on youtube”.

It is likely that some players have noticed the absence of some songs on Youtube, but DeoxysPrime decided to give a message so that all his followers are up to date with the situation. “This is not the first time I have dealt with this issue on my channel but it will be the last. I feel sorry for everyone who enjoys his music but I don’t have much of a choice,” said the youtuber.
Although DeoxysPrime has removed Nintendo music from his channel, the YouTuber says he has no intention of shutting it down or removing the rest of the non-Nintendo music. “I enjoy listening to Nintendo music here as much as you do, but it just doesn’t make sense to continue like this,” the user said.

In January of this year, the youtuber GilvaSunner went through a similar case, when he received more than 3,500 complaints from the company, probably setting a record in the matter. At that time, the youtuber had said that he preferred to give up and close the channel, but the community suspected that the copyright claims could come from an imitator and not from Nintendo.
