Nintendo continues its war on piracy by suing another large site containing game ROMs for Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS.
Nintendo continues the war with no quarter to piracy and to sites that illegally host the company ‘s gaming ROMs, specifically by targeting the RomUniverse site with a multimillion cause.
The portal in question appeared to be one of the most visited for the illegal download of ROMs belonging to the Nintendo catalog , containing numerous Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS games and bringing, according to the indictment, the download of about “300,000 Nintendo Switch titles downloads” and “more than 500,000 downloads” of Nintendo 3DS games.
Nintendo has requested the immediate closure of the site, which according to the indictment proposes “counterfeit copies of Nintendo trademarks”, with super compensation provided: $ 150,000 for each copyright infringement and as much as $ 2 million for each infringement relating to Nintendo trademarks, for a total at the moment not clear but certainly gigantic.
RomUniverse proposed a rich catalog of ROMs to be downloaded with a particular formula: it was, in fact, possible to pay a kind of subscription for $ 30 a year to easily obtain access to the ROMs and a particularly fast download, apparently.
The story follows closely the other similar cause recently won by Nintendo, according to which it has obtained that various pirate sites should be blocked by internet providers in the UK, as well as numerous other lawsuits such as the famous one of 12 million dollars against LoveROMS.com and LoveRETRO.co.
