Well, that's a good occasion for other music extenders to get more famous. They'd celebrate if their channels had as many views on their videos as BrawlBRSTMs3 X.

I don't see why Nintendo have to take down videos just for their stupid music. Wouldn't that be a good form of advertisement for their games? They aren't musical artists who wouldn't make money if their entire music was open-source, they're a freaking video game company. If someone hears of them thanks to the music, the same person might feel obliged to learn about their new games and purchase them. Business.
As for perverted stuff, it shouldn't be tolerated on a site that can be visited by everyone, just like inclining to drink alcohol, be violent or hateful towards certain groups of people (e.g. LGBTQ or black people). Pedophilia takes a cake most. It all is okay so long as a YouTuber or Twitch user doesn't get recognizable enough.

I don't understand why we can't just listen to the music on YouTube when there's no OST floating out there, besides in the sound test.
And OST CDs. I can't see why those exist if video game companies earn money on games already and most people listen to it for free.

It's so shitty that they're taking down videos that have been up for EIGHT FUCKING YEARS!
Hopefully not. Just like majorly inappropriate stuff, it was about time Brawl became popular and eventually got shut down. They mostly focused on music from major video games - including Nintendo's products - and that's how they became popular. They decided to remove Nintendo VGM from their channel in order to abide to the guidelines on Nintendo's website, so their channel can stay, however it wasn't enough. They'd been notorious for infringements on Nintendo until they made the decision.

AFAIK, offering gameplay footages of Nintedo games is fine so long as you don't monetize it. However, you can make business on commentated stuff and other forms of creative contribution.
I have a Discord server as well!
Basically, I believe in peace and bashing two bricks together.
