"Originally found by Gamegeschiedenis, classic photos show Nintendo literally taking the fight to piracy. The images, captured by various sources, show Nintendo using a roller in the Netherlands to destroy thousands of counterfeit games. Even Mario was present at the event."

“Video game company Nintendo is using a roller to combat piracy. At Lelystad airport ten thousand counterfeit video games were crushed. The Japanese company has started a targeted and structured worldwide campaign to combat forgeries of their video games. The destroyed games came from Hong Kong and were confiscated from a Dutch importing company.”

Times never change, while physical counterfeit copies are no longer such a big deal these days, Nintendo does however defend their IPs by DMCA-ing fan games and shutting down "HD" recreations on the internet. While I personally agree in the rights of most copyright owners to defend their creations, I know quite a few people on this site that disagree. What do you think, should Nintendo continue having Mario steam-rolling fan made games and recreations?

Mario was there in person? *Mafia theme plays*



The thing is that they need to defend their IP in EVERY case, because if they let it slide in a few cases, when it's a serious case the law will look back and be like "Hey, you remember that time when...? You must let it go this time too".

Indeed he was! Just re-added some pictures, hopefully it doesn't appear broken this time.

Never copy images from a Nintendo Everything article. They program there images to only work for like 5 minutes and then break.
