Nintendo On the Hunt For More Scalps

rjch writes “After its recent win against mod chip piracy in the Australian Federal courts, Nintendo is now on the prowl for other companies to sue. ‘Nintendo will pursue those who attempt to jeopardise the gaming industry by using all means available to it under the law. In particular, Nintendo is currently contemplating bringing further actions against other sellers of game copying devices in Australia.’ The game company said since 2008 it had pursued over 800 actions in 16 countries to stop game piracy, confiscating ‘well over’ half a million game copiers for the Nintendo DS. The company said piracy affected sales, the price of video games, and employment in the video game industry.”
Reader daria42 sends in a related piece asking whether Nintendo is being too harsh over this and the recent $1.5 million judgment against a man who leaked New Super Mario Bros. Wii.
