I have seen on some sites, including Yahoo! Answers, have misleading information about certain material. I have got to say this: DO NOT go to or contact Nintendo about something, like hacking. Reason: Nintendo is a corporation, which means that all they're concerned about is the good ol' dollar. So, Of course they'll say NO to ANYTHING regarding hacks. This is an EXAMPLE from Yahoo! Answers: Can I Download a Nintendo ROM from the Internet if I Already Own the Authentic Game? There is a good deal of misinformation on the Internet regarding the backup/archival copy exception. It is not a "second copy" rule and is often mistakenly cited for the proposition that if you have one lawful copy of a copyrighted work, you are entitled to have a second copy of the copyrighted work even if that second copy is an infringing copy. The backup/archival copy exception is a very narrow limitation relating to a copy being made by the rightful owner of an authentic game to ensure he or she has one in the event of damage or destruction of the authentic. Therefore, whether you have an authentic game or not, or whether you have possession of a Nintendo ROM for a limited amount of time, i.e. 24 hours, it is illegal to download and play a Nintendo ROM from the Internet. The answeree went to Nintendo. So, DO NOT go to or contact Nintendo regarding ANYTHING about hacking!
