PETA has officially shaken the beehive.

Nintendo is not even slightly amused by PETA's Pokemon Parody. --> www.zeldainformer.com/news/com…

I know a good amount about copyright law, and in general what is OK and what isn't, and even I wondered how PETA "got away" with this far-too-identical "parody". I figured they HAD to have gotten some amazing lawyer to find some loopholes. But if PETA has actually taken a step too far in this case, and actually infringed on Nintendo's copyrights, PETA is in for a shitstorm.

They just fucked with the same company that FORCED A MAN TO PUBLICLY APOLOGIZE FOR MAKING BOOTLEG MARIO GAMES, THEN GOT HIS PIRATE ASS DEPORTED.
(I wanted to link to a source for this, but I couldn't find one - does anyone else know where I can find an article about this? I remember the apology letter being in Nintendo Power. It was so fucking sweet, Nintendo is bad ass.)

Nintendo is not a company to fuck with.

Holy shit, if Nintendo is the company that finally makes PETA pay...
Oh god, the thought of it is so sweet I may have to fap to it.

Oh please let PETA have fucked up. OH PLEASE.
Let Nintendo have a foothold to get in there and seriously FUCK UP THEIR SHIT.

I won't feel satisfied until Sir Reggie Fils-Aimee personally punches Ingrid Newkirk in the face.

(THANK YOU FOR THE HEADS-UP, Watarimono-nyan!!!)

PETA stands for "People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals".
On the surface, they look like a nice organization that fights to keep animals free from pain and suffering, from becoming meat, coats, and science experiments.

But if you look into them, they also have twisted desires, like for all domesticated animals (dogs, cats, etc) to go extinct, and for no one to have pets. To achieve this goal, they euthanize most of the pet animals that come into their care, even if they are healthy, just because being a pet is a humiliation in their eyes. (I think 98% of what they rescue are killed - the number is in the thousands!)

They also abuse the donations they get from well-meaning animal lovers, and of course, they lie about all of this.

So, I am not a huge fan of their organization. xD

People like that piss me off so much! All those poor innocent lives that were taken. I think i've seen their logo somewhere... It was some time ago though. How long have they been around?

To be honest, I'm not sure -- since at least the 80's, I'd say.
