Nintendo On the sentencing of hacking group member Gary Bowser

#3683

Unread post by cm2 »

Just read from VGC on it, calling it a very significant moment for Nintendo:

The company’s lawyer Ajay Singh reportedly told the court: “This is a very significant moment for us”.

He added: “It’s the purchase of video games that sustains Nintendo and the Nintendo ecosystem, and it is the games that make the people smile.

“It’s for that reason that we do all we can to prevent games on Nintendo systems from being stolen.”

US district court judge Robert Lasnik seemingly agreed with Singh, stating that TV and movies regularly glorify hacking as “sticking it to the man”, giving the impression that there’s no harm in it given how much money large companies make.

At one point Lasnik asked Singh: “What else can we do to convince people that there’s no glory in this hacking / piracy?”

Singh answered: “There would be a large benefit to further education of the public.”

Bowser’s lawyer had asked for Bowser to serve 19 months, much of which had already been served. Lasnik, however, sentenced him to 40 months, stating: “I think there is a role to be played here in terms of a message.”

So Bowser was involved in this fiasco this whole time! I can think of all the memes that will be coming out of this...

I am pro retro piracy, since it seemingly doesn't affect the market (and no, Switch Online DOES NOT count for a game being on the market! It has to, or should be a game sold in retail stores to count as negative piracy!), but I am against the illegal distribution of games of currently active systems! Though buying the games legally should be able to cancel out the piracy aspect, it sadly doesn't...

I also believe that DOWNLOADING roms is not NEARLY as bad as UPLOADING or HOSTING them (which I nor Nintendo 3DS Central will be condoning, YOU'RE WELCOME NINTENDO!!!), as they seem to be going after those who host unauthorized copyrighted content rather than those who download it!

Plus the US has some exceptions for software copying, as the DMCA permits the copying of software for back-up purposes, and personal use! Not 100% sure, but that's what I think!

Nintendo needs to make some sort of comic featuring Mario and Bowser on this whole case, but since they have no sense of humor, others will have to do that!
