"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?
