https://www.change.org/petitions/nintendo-of-america-allow-super-smash-bros-melee-to-be-streamed-at-evo-2013-2?share_id=hzGlJNRHbL&utm_campaign=friend_inviter_chat&utm_medium=facebook&utm_source=share_petition&utm_term=permissions_dialog_false

Petition wrote:
This year, the Super Smash Bros. Melee community raised almost $100k for breast cancer research, and won a spot at the largest Fighting Game tournament in the world, EVO, for which SSBM registration DOUBLED the all time record for any Smash Tournament. Now, less than 3 days away from the tournament, Nintendo has announced that they will not allow EVO to stream Super Smash Bros. Melee online, shocking the SSBM community and ruining this once in a lifetime event that the community has worked so hard for.

Probably won't change anything when it gets it's signatures, but this thread is more about awareness of the issue than the petition itself.  Nintendo is just giving it's entire devoted Melee community the finger.

Some more details:

Thoughts on this?

*UPDATE*

Thanks to the overwhelmingly negative response, Nintendo has back tracked on this policy!

This is probably part of nintendos thing with not letting people make money with their videos.

Nintendo is just another company; another money-grubbing piece of piss company.

Wow, that's really disappointing.
Do they not realize that it's for a good cause?

http://www.vooks.net/nintendo-puts-stop-to-evo-2013-super-smash-bros-melee-live-stream/

"Update: Nintendo has back tracked on the Smash Bross Melee block and the game will be allowed back into the live streaming schedule."

The reason why i think they did it in the first place is because they don't want Smash Bros to be viewed in the same light as Street Fighter, Marvel Vs Capcom and all the other not so accessible on a wide level fighters.

However, it appears all the negative reaction forced them to back track on this.

I think it has to do with what Giga said. Nintendo has even cracked down on "Let's Play" videos.

On the contrary, it escalated very, very quickly and Nintendo realized they were pissing off a very large crowd of fans who put their own money into the event.

It was all a misunderstanding.
Nintendo thought it was a paid event using their game to make a profit.

What likely got them to stop trying to stop the stream was not the voice of the people, but the fact that it is being used for charity to support Breast Cancer research.

(Though at the same time, if you have to use something like having Melee at EVO in order to get people to willingly donate to such charity, that says how shallow humanity really is.)
