Streamers receive stream for music from Ed Sheeran in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
A short time ago, singer Ed Sheeran launched an official music video in partnership with Nintendo, which has the theme of Pokémon. The song Heavenly got millions of views in a short time and was introduced in the Pokémon Scarlet & Violet credits. But apparently, this is making some streamers take a stream when they reach the end of the game.

Pokémon Scarlet & Violet was released on November 18 and some streamers have already achieved the feat of reaching the end of the game. When this occurs, the credits appear and Ed Sheeran’s music touches.
The surprise, however, is that many content creators are taking a DM ITA MILLENNIUM COPYRIGHT ACT (DMCA) that protects copyright from intellectual productions.
Streamer Driver is quite popular internationally and has not escaped this strike. After the incident, he decided to share the event on Twitter to alert other content producers.
The comments soon came to the streamer tweet defending it and criticizing the fact that they are strike, with comments like It’s ridiculous for an in-Game song to give Copyright Strike, even more one song that was made to promote the game.
Apparently if streaming platforms do not change it soon, streamers will have to mutate the sound when they reach Pokémon Scarlet & Violet’s final credits. So far, Ed Sheeran’s press office has not commented, nor Nintendo. Will this remain this or will take action to facilitate the work of content creators?
