How Nintendo pioneer changed gaming

A browser-based re-creation of the popular Super Mario Brothers console game has fallen foul of Nintendo's copyright lawyers,


http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-24612069[^]

Should Nintendo be aggressively crushing this boy and the online browser version of the game or should they give him a reasonable offer, buy the game off him and maybe win some customer loyalty points? Simply crushing the game will make fans of the series turn on Nintendo, maybe they're missing a trick here? Nintendo as many might know haven't been doing well recently, the WII U being a massive flop.

"Earlier this year Nintendo stopped people posting footage of their games on YouTube." Which in my opinion is one of the worst decisions a gaming company could make, people watch these games on YouTube, watch the "Let's Play" and are encouraged to play the game themselves, it's free, positive marketing!
