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.

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 also not good anymore, Nintendo is shutting down many places in China that sells The R4.

To that end, you're telling me a reporter for CNN or the BBC doesn't work for CNN/BBC? Give me a break.
Don't be so obtuse. Reporters are directly on their payroll, and answer to their HR. CNN is not an employee of Nike, but they get paid by Nike every time they show a commercial, now don't they? :rolleyes:

CNN in that instance is a platform for advertiser's. It would be hard to equate Garyopa to a platform in & of himself

Just admit it, he's their fucking employee lol. Everyone can see this.

Nope. He advertises all kinds of products on his site. Not just stuff from SX. Of course that site was taken down so I can't provide screenshots. You could almost call him a retailer, but he never personally touched/shipped/sold any of the things. He got paid from the various companies based on who clicked on advertisements, and who purchased said company's products via link from his site.

This wouldn't stand in any court I know about. In any case, he trafficked or helped to traffick illegal goods.

Yes. I agree with this.

I just haven't personally seen evidence that he is a "member" of that specific team. He promoted much more than just SX stuff. In his current situation, he would have to take the 5th without using this fact as an argument though (as if not being an SX member would make him less guilty of the charges anyway...), so I'll never be proven right, I guess.
