    Nintendo sends DMCA claim to Google for SX OS, removes WiiDatabase.de download page from search results.

    Nintendo claims that this can bypass the protective measures of the switch - more precisely, it is about piracy. While this is still understandable with SX OS and the SX Pro, the claim is also directed against NS-Atmosphere and other payload injectors. This is incomprehensible, since it is not even possible at home to play illegally downloaded games with other payload injectors, so Nintendo has no right to withhold this information. The modding of the own console was and is always completely legal.

    The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) is actually a US law to "fight" copyright infringement. However, it disadvantages those affected, as it is difficult to disagree and the service provider has to react immediately, regardless of whether the claim is true or not. The download page of SX OS on the WiiDatabase is now no longer found on Google (the SX OS beta already, let's see how long that takes), not even on Google Germany, where the law does not apply.

    WiiDatabase was the place I visited frequently to my WADs.
    Such a shame it got taken down.
    Poor TX, they bring misfortune whenever they go.
