    I was going to suggest playing Hyrule Warriors or Splatoon for Extra Life, if you have access to a Wii U. But lately, Nintendo has been taking an aggressive stance over alleged infrigements of its IPs.

    The Pokemon Company has filed suit against a Pokemon-themed PAX party that does not turn a profit:


    Nintendo has cracked down on tool-assisted speedruns of Mario games on YouTube:


    And then there's Nintendo's Content Program, which you have discussed before.

    Is it unreasonable to be concerned that streaming gameplay for charity could get you in legal trouble?

    Is it unreasonable? No? Is it going to? No. We're comparing a lot of kiwi and pomegranate to apples here. TAS are done with ROMs and emulators, and while I'm sure someone's going to argue how it's "OK" if you own the game and system, ownership of the games forbids such actions in their manuals ("user agreement") and the law has not come down on the user's side at this time.

    Moreover, while the party may not have made a profit, they were blatantly utilizing a company's trademark for promotional purposes without permission. That's just a no-no. Furthermore, I question the idea that there was no contact prior to the suit; IANAL, but I'd imagine their case would suffer legally without some evidence they made an effort to ask him to knock it off. I also suspect there's some argument to be made that even if the party wasn't making money, it WAS charging fees so money was involved.
