YouTube creators who make Nintendo content can now bypass the ContentID system... sort of.
Nintendo has officially launched the Nintendo Creators Program, an ad-revenue sharing system for YouTube users who use Nintendo content or music in their videos.
By registering your YouTube channel and a PayPal account, you can now submit your entire channel or individual videos to be reviewed by Nintendo. Once approved, a majority of the ad revenue will be deposited into your Paypal account at the end of each month. Currently you will receive 70% of the revenue if you register your entire channel, and 60% if you only register individual videos.
Previously, if you uploaded a video with certain footage or audio from a Nintendo game, there would be a "ContentID" claim put on it. This allowed Nintendo to run advertisements on the video page, and did not allow the user to run any of their own ads, or profit from any ad revenue gained from the video.
