Big grin Nintendo Wars - The Force Awakens (fraking again)

Nintendo was always known to care about fans, gamers and public...

Nintendo orders takedown of more than 500 indie games

The fan-made games infringed dozens of copyrights across multiple franchises.

Nintendo has forced 526 fan-made games off the internet with a barrage of takedown requests.
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DCMA) takedown requests targeted fan-made remakes of hundreds of classic Nintendo games including 341 based on Mario, 133 Pokémon remakes and 42 new versions of Zelda games.
The games were hosted on indie gaming site Game Jolt, a place where develops can upload browser-based and downloadable games for free. The website posted a public statement about the takedown notice, saying “we believe the public should know what content is being removed from Game Jolt and why.”

Yeah it sucks, but I seriously don't know why people continue to keep copying/referencing Nintendo's stuff without permission. That's like wrapping your hand in bacon, holding it in front of a dog and then expecting it not to bite.

Some are laughable of course, a Five Nights At Freddies clone was taken down because the name ended with "Zelda". You don't take down a game because of that, you take it down because if is the one billionth FNAF clone.

That is it in a nutshell, just one of my reasons for *NOT* every purchasing anything by Nintendon't

It's a bit pants alright, but at the same time, they have a legal right (and even an obligation) to protect their IP. Perhaps they're a little overzealous, but I still thoroughly enjoy their products and so still happily buy them.

And, as gimbal says, why do people deliberately copy their stuff anyway? Seems like asking for trouble...

Its just tiring that people continuously try to test the fences trying to see how far they can go and then whine their socks off when they get zapped. Own up to your own antics.
