The internet loses its mind after YouTube changes its terms of service agreement.

Many high profile YouTubers made videos on the news that YouTube will no longer monetise videos that what they consider are not "advertiser friendly" with topics such as war political conflicts natural disasters and tragedies among the list of banned subjects.

However after the dust has settled and the new terms are more closely examined. It turns out that this practice has been going on for many months and only now are creators being told of the de-monetisation but also that there is now an appeal process which means you can now discover why it's been de-monetised change the video and start earning money for your content.

Panic over people!

Nintendo: Not a fan of their fans?

Nintendo have issued take down requests and look to kill over 500 fan made games featuring their beloved Nintendo stars. These homages were a tribute to stars like Zelda, Pokémon Stellar, Mario and Super Metroid.

Most of the games were hosted on Game Jolt and these creators shared their passion for free.

Nintendo of course have every right to take these games down, but fans have reacted angrily over the decision.

It's not the first time Nintendo have decided to annoy their fans, remember "Let's Play"?
