Evil Nintendo Lawyers take down more than 8,500 clones of Switch emulator Yuzu

Read from VGC:

In a statement made on GitHub’s page, the site explained that since Nintendo had pointed out more than 100 repositories that it alleged were offering the emulator, GitHub applied the same action to all of them.

“Because the reported network that contained the allegedly infringing content was larger than one hundred (100) repositories, and the submitter alleged that all or most of the forks were infringing to the same extent as the parent repository, GitHub processed the takedown notice against the entire network of 8,535 repositories, inclusive of the parent repository,” it stated.

Nintendo had claimed that Yuzu was “facilitating piracy at a colossal scale”, and Tropic Haze settled the lawsuit just weeks later, agreeing to pay $2.4 million in damages.

As part of the judgment by the US District Court of Rhode Island, Tropic Haze was issued with a permanent injunction preventing it from offering or marketing Yuzu or any of its source code in the future.

Other users have seemingly taken it upon themselves to redistribute variations of the emulator via GitHub, hence this week’s mass takedown.
