    Well you don't have to like it but it's their property and as long as there's no time limit on them doing this they can do it. If you spent years working on a project and it was how you made your living and someone tried to distribute for free you might not like it either. I don't know you though maybe you would, but overall it's fair for someone to protect their own property how they see fit. I can guarantee that Nintendo does not care if a pirate doesn't like that they took down a pirate site.

    Its still a thing that it seems like a afterthought to go after these people. Its something that should of been done long ago.

    Besides it's not like piracy has ended anyway it won't probably ever. For every site they take down 5 more will come up.

    You should send Nintendo an email and tell them they should have done it a long time ago. That'll show em!

    I don´t know, maybe it´s easier now for Nintendo to force pirate sites to shut down than it was 15 Years ago?

    Nintendo is not one person who 15 years ago would have made the same decision as today. They are a huge corporation. Iwata was in charge then but he died. We should probably feel lucky they didn't jump on this 15 years ago because piracy may not have become what it is on every Nintendo system that came out. They have also been unsuccessful at keeping hackers from hacking every one of their systems to come out ever in one way or another. None of that really matters though.

    Yes and also the fact that Nintendo is out of Japan and the countries making these pirate sites are out of other countries than Japan. It's not as easy when it's another country because laws usually apply to that country. It seems the last few years more countries are getting on board with stopping piracy as the Bay guys went to prison in Sweden etc.

    Are you able to say more about the reason to shut down?
    Anyways, thanks for the service, I appreciate it tremendously.

    Theisozone was taken down by a rouge admin.

    the site is actually back up under a new name (I all can say is that the name of the site is “part of a book or manual”)
