Nintendo has recently succeeded in eliminating the threat to their intellectual property rights and shut down yet another fan-made game that took almost a decade to develop. RPG Pokémon Uranium managed to generate more than a million downloads in a couple days, but their makers eventually decided to cave in to legal pressure from Nintendo.
The fan-made RPG Pokémon Uranium was released a few days ago and quickly became very popular, in part leveraging on the Pokémon hype. However, Nintendo was also quick to spring into action, accusing the developers of copyright infringement and asking them to stop distributing the game.
Pokémon Uranium’s developers admitted that they were not contacted directly, but were notified of multiple takedown notices from Nintendo of America and eventually decided to pull the release offline in order to avoid legal problems. Of course, the game’s makers and players are disappointed, but Nintendo’s actions were predictable, as it is known to pursue fan projects using Nintendo trademarks or copyrights.
While it is understandable that Nintendo protects its rights, the company could also learn something from these fan projects and use them to its own advantage, like it did 3 years ago – after Nintendo pulled down the popular fan-made game “Full Screen Mario”, it announced its new “Mario Maker” with many similar features.
In any case, game developers who are going to release a game inspired by a Nintendo release are strongly recommended to refrain from using any trademarked or copyrighted Nintendo material, because otherwise they are doomed to be shut down sooner or later.

So it's ok for Nintendo to pilfer other's property rights and creative genius?
|Considering that Pokemon go is a CIA spy app disguised as a game with full access to hundreds of millions of users cameras and GPS worldwide with a license agreement stating that they can give or sell any info gathered by the game to any gov't agency or corporations. they want, and it was funded by a cia intelligence gathering company to be created, Nintendo doesn't have any credibility anymore to complain about copyright. After all ,they are deceptively (Criminally?) stealing all users camera and other data worldwide and giving it to the CIA.|
|I don't know why I'm still surprised when people suggest conspiracy theories like the one above, but this one is just...wow...W0W!|
|@8 please show some proof. Not just your insane ramblings.|

|well since pokemon go was made in oz makes sense that its a cia spy app as everyone already knows they have installed cameras inside every single kangaroo its not that much of a leap to see that #8 is right.. my big question is why call it uranium why not just call it pokemon fukishima nuke kills whipe out towns|
i guess its not a colour
|#8 and #11 lay off the crack, shame Nintendo does not just back projects instead of kill peoples hard work and crush dreams.|
|Hello Mister Kazer #12 and Dougy #10. Are you shills?? It took me 1 minute to find that out about Pokemon and I didn't have anyone holding my hand telling me what to do. I already laid it out for you if you bothered to do ANY INTERNET SEARCHING AT ALL you could easily verify what I said. I'll hold your hands OK?? Go to You tube and type in Pokemon go conspiracy or Pokemon go government surveillance app etc. there are lots of videos. Why do you think all the worldwide news and TV programs talked about Pokemon go every day endlessly when the game game out, for weeks. to give free advertising and promote the game to help the CIA etc get access to millions of users camera's. Good little puppet worldwide media and puppet news casters worldwide. Fake controlled news.|
|LOL @rebornawareness... your keen eye for trusted information sources is unmatched!|
Whats next sir? Are you gonna tell us about the fake moon landings and the flat earth conspirancy? haha I think you can find "proof" for just about anything if you search a keyword on youtube followed by conspiracy..... I once saw a leprechaun there... Sssssh
