Nintendo has already shown that it has no problem resorting to the courts to defend its Intellectual Property and, in this case, attack piracy. The Japanese company has just started a multi-million dollar lawsuit against a site that shares ROMs.
The demanded site is RomUniverse, a subscription service that offers unlimited downloads of new and old Nintendo games for $ 30 a year. In his presentation against the site's owner, Matthew Storman, Nintendo says that RomUniverse was "built largely on the brazen and massive violation of Nintendo's intellectual property rights" and that on the site "hundreds of thousands of copies of games Nintendo have been downloaded illegally. ”
Nintendo is asking for up to USD $ 150,000 for each copyrighted work that the site shared more 2 million dollars for infringing your registered trademark. The latter is because within the RomUniverse games copies of the registered trademark of Nintendo are included, so by sharing them they violated the laws of registered trademarks such as copyright. We will see how this case is resolved.
Do you agree that Nintendo sue this kind of sites?
