How not to treat your fan-base: Nintendo vs Sega

I just read that a Kickstarter I supported now is the subject of an intellectual property dispute:
https://www.kickstarter.com/dmca/nin...pendium-submit

Although I understand the need for copyright laws, this book-project caters to nostalgic fans from the 8-bit era, a group that Nintendo itself has been really bad at supporting - especially with print media.

Their YouTube-debacle is also a sign that they really don't understand how to approach a fan-based community.

A company that has taken a completely different road is Sega announcing that they allow people to share ROM-hacks for their MegaDrive-titles at Steam.

Although I prefer Mario over Sonic, I really do prefer Sega over Nintendo as a company right now.
