Nintendo Piracy Case Wins 4.8 Million Euros

As a growing number of countries take a stance against piracy, Nintendo recently won with a cease on R4 cards and linkers that copy games and either sell them for a much smaller fee, or give them away for free.

Nintendo supported this criminal action not only for the company’s sake, but for the interests of its game developer partners who spend time and money legitimately developing software for Nintendo’s game platforms, and customers who expect the highest standards and integrity from products bearing the Nintendo name,” ~ Stephan Bole, Managing Director of Nintendo France.

 This isn't something that just applies to video game piracy, but digital piracy in general such as music, movies, and computer programs. Implications of this case can be far reaching.

So 4.8 million Euros is about 6.4 million U.S. dollars. Just a drop in the bucket for Nintendo. Maybe they could give their 3DS customers a free sticker pack. XD
