As expected, Nintendo is taking action to try to scrub the eye-catching unofficial Super Mario 64 PC port from the internet. But it faces an uphill struggle.
This week TorrentFreak reported on how the Super Mario 64 PC port executable had disappeared from some file-hosting sites, pointing to a Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) takedown from US-based law firm Wildwood Law Group LLC, a company said to be working on behalf of Nintendo, of a Google Drive link that had done the rounds.
“The copyrighted work is Nintendo’s Super Mario 64 video game, including the audio-visual work, software, and fictional character depictions covered by U.S. Copyright Reg. No. PA[REDACTED],” the notice reads.
