Beth Llewelyn, PR manager for Nintendo US,
has issued a formal statement confirming that
Nintendo will pursue legal action against
"Reality Man" and "Epsilon", the nom de plume
of the creators of the UltraHLE N64 emulator.
Says Llewelyn, "Nintendo is very disturbed that
Reality Man and Epsilon have widely distributed
a product designed solely to play infringing
copies of copyrighted works [ ... ] We are
taking several measures to further protect and
enforce our intellectual property rights which,
of course, includes the bringing of legal action.
Emulators and ROMs are clearly infringing and
damage not only 'larger industry players' such
as Nintendo but hundreds of smaller companies
who invest millions of dollars and thousands of
hours to develop and program software only to
have it stolen on the Internet." "
