Nintendo Takes Down Fan-Made Games

On the first day of September, Nintendo sent GameJolt.com a notice about removing 562 fan-made games that were infringing the rights of Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, and Pokemon:

These web pages display images of Nintendo’s video game characters in connection with unauthorized online games that copy the characters, music, and other features of Nintendo’s video games.

Shortly after the notice was sent, Nintendo-inspired fan-made games have been removed from the gaming site. However, the games’ creators can still access them “for historical purposes”.
