Earlier this year we told you that Nintendo made copyright claims against popular YouTube Let's Plays and made the ad revenue go to Nintendo alone. Many Let's Players were outraged as they believed their playthroughs are great advertising tools for Nintendo. Well, it seems that this may come to an end as some claim that their revenue has returned. Popular YouTuber Zack Scott is back to posting his Nintendo LP's after he noticed his revenue stream coming back. 

Scott: "I saw the revenue return and I had no further claims made on any of my other videos since the news broke, so I took the leap of faith."

It looks like the Let's Play drama may have a happy ending after all.
