For “substantial and irreparable harm.”

Nintendo continues its litigious ways with a new lawsuit against a couple of Switch pirates. Nintendo of America alleges that the defendants have violated its copyright via the trading and selling of “circumvention devices.” Meaning, the accused have been selling modded consoles, pirated games, and mod chips to consumers. Ryan Michael Daly of Modded Hardware and James C. Williams are the defendants.

Nintendo filed the suits in Seattle, Washington on June 28. The company alleges that the duo’s actions have done “irreparable harm” to Nintendo. Cease and desist letters were sent to both Daly and Williams, with the latter of the two apparently publicly declaring that he’s a “pirate” and that he refuses to pay Nintendo money for the company’s games.

Nintendo has been busy this year defending its IP, with the March takedown of Tropic Haze, which had to pay $2.4 million for its Yuzu emulation software, and even the targeting of 20 years worth of Garry’s Mod content back in April.
