Sooo, with the pictures from instagram as well as the imgur one that has two images, im pretty sure the next week is gonna be exploding with pictures. THE QUESTION is, that since people ARE posting pictures pre-release, does nintendo have a legal claim in sue'ing them? or because stores ignored the streetdate and released some of them do the people who do post them have leeway?

Not seemingly. There are a lot of reports about it. Lots of locations sold the game early. That means a lot of retailers are about to get sued.

Nintendo can not sue a customer for buying a product early.

If they discover from which store they purchased, they can make claims of damage on reputation/etc. and sue said retail chain.




The only thing they can sue a person who has the game early for is if they send them a C&D letter over copyright material and tell them to remove their photos/accounts. If they don't then they can take them to court.

lol i doubt it would happen but imagine if Nintendo's response was "oh it leaked ok we will release it this Saturday the 5th instead of the 12th to minimize any potential damage"

"seemingly" lol

I love how the article tries to claim this will ruin the launch and they recommend you wait blah blah blah as if this is some terrible immoral thing.

While I am neutral to the leaks and have been looking at them myself, it is indeed an immoral business practice.

Those shops are breaking agreement for more money, that is greedy and immoral.
