Uruguayan Counterfeit To Pay Nintendo


Posted July 6, 2007 - By Mike D'Alonzo

A Uruguayan counterfeiter is going to be paying out the nose for having sold fake Nintendo stuff. Yes, the Uruguayan Civil Court has ordered him to pay over $2.5 million in damages to Nintendo for selling the false merchandise. Though the man was cleared of criminal charges, this civil suit proves that there were damages, and they were significant.

It's a pretty harsh penalty, and it sends a message to would-be counterfeiters worldwide that Nintendo isn't going to tolerate any of their brand being infringed on. So, if you've got a thousand copies of a version of Super Mario Galaxy that isn't out yet, you might want to think twice before putting that bad boy on Craigslist. Ya heard?
