Nintendo finally responds to PETA's Pokemon "Parody"

Posted on October 20, 2012 - 5:00pm by Kaibaman41

Editor's Note: I don't think this is going end in a lawsuit. Sure PETA is using the exact characters, which can be considered copyright infringment but the non-profit isn't making any money from this "game" and it can claim its using the characters under fair use. So the whole thing is kind of a legal gray area. Although I have to admit I'm surprised Nintendo has yet to use its legal resources to shut these games down like it has to legit fan projects in the past. I guess Nintendo doesn't want to deal with the possibility of negative PR in the mainstream press or maybe it just feels no one takes PETA seriously. Who knows?

While it did take a while for Nintendo to officially respond to the madness of PETA's Pokemon "parody", which we all know isn't anything more but its own sick Propaganda disguised as a parody, Nintendo has finally made a comment to PETA's flash game with this.

 “Nintendo and the Pokémon Company take the inappropriate use of our products and intellectual property seriously.”
 
It's unknown why it took Nintendo a good long time to respond to this. My guess is Nintendo probably isn't going to play nice with PETA anymore, It's probably safe to say Nintendo knows a joke when they see it from the fans but with the crap PETA constantly pulls we can only assume Nintendo might actually sue these guys but only time will tell.
 
So g1s what are your thoughts on Nintendo's statement?
