Lego Issues Copyright Takedown Notices for Upcoming Zelda Set
Lego’s upcoming Zelda-themed The Great Deku Tree set has been the topic of many rumors and leaks, but it wasn’t until recently that Lego began issuing copyright takedown notices on YouTube videos that mentioned it. YouTube channel Nintendo Prime received one of these notices after discussing the rumored set in one of their videos.
Evidence of Legitimacy
The fact that Lego is issuing takedown notices for videos discussing the rumored set is a strong indication that the set is, in fact, real. As Nintendo Prime pointed out, if they were using images that belonged to Lego, then Lego wouldn’t have reason to issue a takedown notice.
Fans have been waiting for a Zelda-themed Lego set for years, and the leak of the Great Deku Tree set earlier this month sparked a lot of excitement. The set is rumored to be a 1,920-piece build that allows for the tree to be constructed with either green or pink leaves, depending on whether players want it to match Ocarina of Time or Breath of the Wild.
It’s unclear why Lego is taking such a strong stance against videos discussing the upcoming set. By issuing takedown notices, they risk harming the very channels that are promoting their products. It remains to be seen what their motivations are for taking these actions.
By issuing copyright strikes, Lego is potentially causing serious harm to YouTube channels that rely on views and subscribers for income. It’s important for copyright holders to protect their intellectual property, but there should be a balance between protecting their rights and allowing creators to discuss and promote their products.
Other Rumoured Sets
The leak that brought the Great Deku Tree set to light also mentioned several other potential Lego sets, including ones based on Lord of the Rings, Gotham City, and Sleeping Beauty. It’s unclear whether Lego will take similar actions against videos discussing these sets.
Excitement and Hype
Despite the takedown notices, there is still a lot of excitement and hype surrounding the rumored Zelda set. Fans of both Lego and Zelda are eagerly awaiting an official announcement from Lego and hoping that the set lives up to the rumors and leaks.
