Nintendo finally responds to PETA's Pokemon "Parody"
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.
