Nintendo wins a key case against a 3DS modchip seller

Nintendo is no stranger to cracking down on companies that sell tools enabling pirated games on its consoles. However, its latest victory might be more important than most. The company has won a copyright case in Canada that accused Go Cyber Shopping (GCS) and its founder, Jeramie King, of illegally selling 3DS flashcarts, modchips and other piracy-oriented tools. While Nintendo would likely be happy enough with that triumph, it notes that this is the first case “of its kind” to test the Canadian Copyright Act’s anti-circumvention measures — think of it as a rough parallel to aspects of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act in the US.
