Nintendo files 301 in US over piracy

Friday, 15th February 2008 07:06 GMT By Patrick Garratt

Hot on the heels of ESA’s 301 filing to the US government, pleading for help in the international war on pirates, Nintendo’s jumped on board and done the same thing.

This one’s not quite as mad as ESA’s, which called for trade sanctions against Canada, but does include, according that reports, assistance from the US government in performing a “crackdown on corruption in Paraguay”. Just bomb them all. It’s easier.

Jodi Daugherty, Nintendo’s senior director of anti-piracy, said, “The unprecedented momentum enjoyed by Nintendo DS and Wii makes Nintendo an attractive target for counterfeiters.”

Nintendo estimates the lost sales caused by piracy to be around $975 million worldwide.

    Bomb the pirates, trash their ship, leave baby and mummy pirates without food or water and then fuck off and leave them to survive.

    It’s piratic madness. How are they going to stop any of this? With riot police?

    With guns, Pat. That’s how America stops everything bad.

    Correct. They’ll kill all those Chinese disc-burners yet.
