Nintendo files lawsuit against Team Xecuter's Gary Bowser

doug-bowser.original.jpg

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.

I cant understand why people are jumping on the "Homebrew" bandwagon and using the sole fair use of "Backups" I mean if you bought your game and have a cartridge to play why bother to "Backup"? Just be fair to yourselfs, admit that pirating is a thing, dont trow it on the but but muh Homebrew or muh backups. Nintendo is just doing what is fair to them. People are mad at Nintendo for defending whats theirs. Its like you go to a car dealer, you take the car that you want and leave the store, and when they send the police to your home you get angry because you demanded to have it at all any cost without giving any penny, or that you go to the grocery store, you grab a can of soda and leave without paying. Everything has consequences. Game companies are not working hours and pouring money into a project for people just to steal it.

I dont want be the devil lawyer here,but piracy its a solution to some cases. For example hardware failure all the 3ds smash bros cartridge games,its a fact those carts have serious issues.

Maybe he wasn't paying for attention about it in 2016. When the US and the Dominican Republic signed a extradite agreement.

Are the keys that nintendo and half the people are claiming that is illegal to sell, are they installed on the chip or in the free downloadable boot.dat?

Distributing for free is illegal too. Coupled with the cart, which they give you instructions on how to bypass DRM by downloading their "free" boot.dat, which by the way requires a paid license to operate and also contains more copyright violations than the keys because of how some of it was coded.

Plus the subscription service they offered for downloading illegal game content.

They are kinda screwed every which way. If they don't plea out then I'll be interested in how they try to argue out of it.

Not anymore in Saudi Arabia, they made new law against piracy and selling them.
Also good luck in Syria, there is no electricity there, my relatives live there (what left of them) and the electricity only come from 6pm to 10PM from special line that can provide 1Amp for each house.

Nintendo will turn to Bowser during the trial and say "All you base belong to us".
Bowser will turn to the judge and say "Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A.".
Judge will dismiss the case.
It's like going after all knife manufacturers because someone got stabbed.

Out of the countries on the list it would make sense not to choose warzones, undeveloped countries or countries with strict religious laws.

China, Russia, Ukraine,Taiwan and Vietnam would be my list

China is now selling Nintendo devices and games, if it brings them profit, they will make it hard for you:

Anyway, in case it's not obvious, I hate piracy.
When I was young I used to pirate a lot and that pretty much killed my interest in games.
I have no issues with homebrew (although I won't use such a thing until a system starts dying out), but in this case team xecuter pushed things too far. Advertising piracy among other stuff they did was too much.

They deserve whatever happens, although sadly, they didnt get most of the members.
