Nintendo is not even slightly
amused by PETA's Pokemon Parody. --> [link]
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.
