I’m surprised that nintendo is taking their sweet ass time taking down switch rom sites. Clearly they don’t care about the 3ds/wii u anymore, as there are several 3ds/wii u rom distribution sites that are still up and running(which I won’t link to), but they just refuse to take down switch rom sites.
They are going after one of the big ones as you can see if you read the below article, I have excerpted part, but I’m not sure if you can name a place for the purpose of news, even if you aren’t linking to it, so I used censorship .
From Major & Persistent Video Game Pirates Investigated by ESA on TorrentFreak:
[censored] – A Thorn in the Side of Nintendo[censored] (previously branded [censored]) offers links to pirated games for most platforms, including PC. In particular, the ESA has previously highlighted the importance of the site to the Nintendo Switch piracy market. In September 2021, the site carried 5,500 posts linking to game downloads for the popular console, including its most recently launched titles.
ESA recently reported that takedown notices sent to [censored] are routinely ignored, and because the site uses Cloudflare, its operators are harder to identify.
In an attempt to remedy the latter, this month ESA obtained a DMCA subpoena against Cloudflare ordering the disclosure of names, physical addresses, IP addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses, payment information, and account updates/histories of the [censored] operators.
