Nintendo recently sued the owner of the ROM site for illegal profits and distribution of copyrighted property Nintendo for a monthly fee, for which the Kyoto-based giant sued for $ 2 million. However, Nintendo filed a lawsuit again when the violator failed to pay the first installment of the $ 50 fine.
According to VGC, the revised lawsuit now prohibits ROMUniverse from ever copying and distributing Nintendo’s copyrighted property. As a resolution, Matthew Storman must confirm the same by deleting by August 20 all files that may be considered copyrighted material by Nintendo by filing an application. Nintendo reportedly wanted to fine Storman up to $ 15 million, but a judge stepped in and brought the amount down to a relatively low $ 2 million.
Nintendo is known for being extremely vigorous in protecting its copyrights, and watching the Kyoto giant pursue such a lawsuit is by no means surprising. ROMUniverse is, of course, just another distribution site that has succumbed to Nintendo’s demands.
