Over the past few weeks, Nintendo has been making a lot of headlines for taking legal action to protect their intellectual property, shutting down fan projects that utilize Nintendo characters. Nintendo issued DMCA takedown notices to the immensely popular AM2R: Return of Samus and the comical No Mario’s Sky among others, leading to considerable backlash from fans.
It doesn’t look like Nintendo is going to change their hardline stance against these types of fan projects anytime soon.
