    Nintendo And Japanese Game Companies Win $944K Worth Of Damages In R4 Piracy Lawsuit

    Nintendo has announced that it has won a considerable amount of damages in its continuing legal battle against R4 sellers. In a statement released today, a Tokyo court ruled that two major R4 distributors must pay Nintendo and 49 other Japanese gaming companies – Square Enix, Capcom, Konami, amongst others – a total of 95,625,000 yen, the equivalent to $944,966.25 US dollars.



    The lawsuit has been an ongoing battle against the pirating of games which infringes Nintendo and other companies’ intellectual property rights. Last year, government officials in Japan banned the use of R4 devices – more commonly known as flashcarts or flashcards – which are used to store pirated software and emulators for the Nintendo DS and 3DS. In the past, Nintendo has cracked down on piracy overseas as well, and has incorporated piracy bans on such devices within Australia and Europe. The company has also said they will continue to fight against the piracy battle in their official statement.
