So Nintendo has been chasing flashcard with claims of violation of intellectual property violations, specifically that bootcodes have been lifted from Warioworld. If these allegations are true then it is clear that these cards have broken the law in their development. Could Acekard be saying to Nintendo "Here is our code. It is our code, and it is not your code. We have stolen nothing and we will show you how we have done it."? Of course, if there is stolen code in that open-sourced blob, Acekard could have also just removed their jockstrap and yelled "betcha can't kick just one!"
