We got trouble. "Rom sites being taken down"

We got trouble. "Rom sites being taken down"

Postby nightwo1f » Mon Jul 23, 2018 2:27 am

Nintendo (No surprises there) is taking legal action against 2 big rom sites for having "Copyright protected software" on their sites available for download. it's seen as pirated software and is therefor illegal.

The article is Here for more information

ReviewtechUSA already made a video about it
Spoiler:


LoveRetro has already been taken down. *i checked*
and Loveroms has all their content removed from the site

Since Nintendo is now making money again on the old titles they see everything where the software can be downloaded for free as a threat to their revenue. because it's all about the freaking money.

Here are my 2 cents on this
And lets not forget Sony and specially Microsoft whom recently added support for Xbox games on the Xbox one which are also purchasable on the live store.
Sony has had released PS1 and PS2 games for the currect gen sinds the PS3 and those guys haven't really made an issue about PS1 and PS2 iso on Rom websites but with the success of the PS4 that might change. but honestly i really doubt Sony will take action.

Microsoft on the other hand, they just recently got into really supporting older titles so we can't really tell how they will react.
Bill Gates was pretty chill about the OG Xbox being hacked because of the new ideas the software mods gave him which where added to 360 but now that Xbox is a household name...

All i'm saying is who knows what might happen with Sony and Microsoft
And who knows which site could be Nintendo their next target. It could be this one and i do believe we try to avoid that here

I would hope that this site will not get hit (or other sites, for that matter) due to companies trying to enforce a "No ROMs" policy or something similar. A lot of rare gems that may not be playable elsewhere could be lost forever. Hell, I'd be irritated enough trying to get import games to test out before buying them if ROM sites go away for good at some point, but if a company wants to make sure people aren't illegally dling games that aren't being made anymore, it's within their rights.

To be honest, they mostly target sites with 3ds ROMs. Also a certain site who claimed to remove all Nintendo brands....one month readded them, now gone again(but can get them on their forums) It's nothing new.

Protecting IP? Shocking.

You would need to be pretty thick if you thought hosting these sites inside the US and offering a premium 'ad free' service wouldn't result in legal action.

So the legal pain is this. If Nintendo does not defend their copyrights in the US, They lose those copyrights and the IPs become public domain.

Trust me Nintendo does not want to defend games that they "may reprint someday, but most likely will not."

Sounds like some one needs more money. How are Switch sales now? I notice it is still hard to find in the stores due to the false shortage garbage Nintendo is good at pulling.

The places like TIZ means some new customers for Sony, Microsoft and other big mobile and PC companies. A lot of non-gamer people visit here and download some emulator and roms and see if they enjoy gaming side of life, they experience gaming.
