    If you thought the arrest of some of Team Xecuter's group would be the end of things for the two sides, you'd be wrong. It's Bowser VS Bowser, as Nintendo of America--and by extension Doug Bowser, has filed a lawsuit against TX's Gary Bowser. Gary Bowser was arrested last year alongside cohort Max Louarn, with the former having been extradited to the United States, and the latter still in custody in Canada, facing extradition as well. Bowser was already dealing with 11 counts of felony charges, and now this new lawsuit, filed in NOA's home turf of Washington State, adds to his list of problems.

    Nintendo alleges that he trafficked piracy devices in the form of SX, and also infringed upon the company's trademarks. As a result, the house of Super Mario is seeking compensation, to the tune of $150,000, as well as charges of $2,500 per "willful violation". Depending on how things go in court, Nintendo may even try to go after a cut of sales profit that Bowser got from selling SX chips. The full, lengthy legal diatribe is available below, courtesy of Polygon.

    Man, Mario's dead, and now they're killing Bowser? Who's next? Princess Peach since there won't be anyone to kidnap or rescue her!?

    That isn't that much money. I don't know how much they made from selling SX OS and hardware, but it's surely way more than this.

    I will be fucking pissed if they don’t hire someone named “Mario” as their lawyer.

    No kill like overkill. Nintendo loves to really stick it to anyone who crosses them, deserved or not.

    This idea seems funny to me for some reason. I wonder how SX buyers would react to that news.

    Also, I was searching for mentions of GBAtemp and found these gems:

    I wonder if theres anything else I missed further up.

    In the mean time we will never see the Epstein files and those in high places that should be in prison will not be, and the little guy will. ALL IS PROPERTY, including us.

    Yeah a civil lawsuit, especially if they think they can recover some funds, often follows a criminal one, indeed a criminal case might be assisted with to get the info to properly do a civil lawsuit or indeed make them less of a flight risk (or possibly sort any extradition/jurisdiction woes). There was even a bit of a fad a while back of companies with goods being pirated getting evidence from criminal complaints and then using those in civil cases.


    That said I am curious to see what laws Nintendo are going in for here. Probably should read the complaint but compared to most European countries, Japan an similar then the US is fairly hard to get such a case going on in.
