Amazon: Nintendo has filed a lawsuit against a Nintendo Switch hack reseller


Nintendo of America has recently filed a lawsuit against a Nintendo Switch hack reseller on Amazon. It alleges that the seller on Amazon going by the name of Le Hoang Minh is bypassing Nintendo’s copyright processes by selling an ‘RMC Loader’ USB device that ‘jailbreaks’ the Nintendo Switch hardware allowing users who purchase the device to play unauthorised or pirated games. According to the lawsuit that was uncovered by Polygon this week, Nintendo issued a DMCA notice to seller Le Hoang Minh but quickly followed up with an infringement lawsuit as a counterclaim was issued to Nintendo. Subsequently, Amazon has now removed the listing and Nintendo is asking the courts for $2,500 per infringement for damages.

Judging by Nintendo’s track record of successful lawsuits in the past, it won’t be too surprising to see this one being resolved quickly given the nature of the infringement.
