    "Upon the game being uploaded to the Internet, Nintendo was able to employ the use of sophisticated technological forensics to identify the individual responsible for illegally copying the file and making it available for further distribution"

    wow, I wonder how hard it was to figure out who uploaded it? IP address maybe!!?

    sophisticated technological forensics..that's priceless

    quick edit: how about going after the store that prematurely sold it!

    The most they can do to the store is force them to stop carrying Nintendo products, and a small fine. It would do nothing but hurt sales more by going after the store. They used this guy as an example.

    That's true...they should force the store to stop selling nintendo products, sue them also for damages due to the store leaking the game, and the game being ripped and uploaded, in a way they should be held responsible too. If the game was never leaked, it would have never been uploaded (so early)


    EDIT: Found This Here on GBAtemp

    More than likely their "sophisticated technological forensics" involved looking at the pictures of the receipt that he posted on this very site.

    (I know they're gone now, but that's what they were.)

    Edit: Darn, ninja'd by the newspost.

    The mentality 'it will never happen to me'. If it CAN happen to you, then it probably will if you're not careful.

    This is just scare tactics, they nab one poor bastard and now there are thousands of people scared, getting paranoid.

    Nearly impossible; it's just for deterrent.

    I find this post rather disturbing than informative. What kongz did was indeed against copyright etc, but makin pathetic comments like this aint rly necessary at all. I mean more than half of this community does pirate games and im sure the same amount did dl this release. But what can you expect from todays ppls malice that got improved greater then ever due to the mighty interwebz ^.
