Money that the creators of Yuzu will have to pay to Nintendo

Last week was one of controversy between Nintendo and the world of emulators, especially the platform Yuzuwhich allows you to try the brand's newest video games, we talk about switch, with ROMS that have broken the internet because they are distributed days before the release of a specific title. This has led to a lawsuit that the creators of this program have lost, and therefore, they must pay a certain amount of money to the Japanese company for the damages caused.

With this in mind, both parties have reached a monetary agreement, and now Tropical Haze received a sentence from the District Court of Rhode Islandwith a permanent court order preventing him from offering or marketing Yuzu or any of its source code in the future. It constitutes that any violation by this group or its members will subject them to the full scope of the Court's contempt authority, including punitive and monetary sanctions.

In addition to having to pay 2.4 million dollars, Nintendo stated that the largest release of switch from last year, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom , was pirated more than a million times in the week and a half before its release in May. This was based on the ROM, so that later it could be altered and modified to run in different aspects, authorization to modify the work that was not clearly given at any time.

Here is part of the statement:

With Yuzu in hand, there is nothing stopping a user from obtaining and playing illegal copies of virtually any game made for the Nintendo Switch, all without paying a dime to Nintendo or any of the hundreds of other game developers and publishers who create and sell games for Nintendo Switch.

In effect, Yuzu turns general computing devices into tools for mass infringement of Nintendo's intellectual property and the copyrighted works of others.

But that's not all for the emulator, as it has been confirmed that Yuzu now it is forced to close completely. Therefore, the code cannot be distributed and the link to download it has been removed from the site to avoid complications accumulated with Nintendo. That means, they have gone bankrupt until they pay all that money.

Editor's note: It is something that also happened at the time, but with hacked consoles that could be loaded with pirated copies, and ending in a lawsuit that the person responsible may not be able to cover in their entire life. With this in mind, a Switch emulator may not arrive until the console becomes old and we have the next generation.
