Nintendo has revealed that as soon as it found out that the New Super Mario Bros. game was uploaded online, it hired a forensic to find the root of the upload. They claim that the illegal upload cost them big time and hurt the industry globally.
"It wasn't just an Australian issue, it was a global issue. There was thousands and thousands of downloads, at a major cost to us and the industry really," Nintendo Australia managing director Rose Lappin said.
"Once it's on the Internet it's anyone's really."
Nintendo said when it discovered the game was online, it used computer forensics experts to identify the individual responsible.
"Nintendo will pursue those who attempt to jeopardise our industry by using all means available to it under the law," the company said in the statement.</blockquote>
