Nintendo, the company that put the NES in litigiousness, has filed a lawsuit with the alternative adult site, SuicideGirls.com (warning: adult content). In a brief email to the site Nintendo said:

We represent Nintendo of America Inc. (“Nintendo”), the owner of the trademark(s) and/or copyrighted works listed above (the “Nintendo trademark(s)/works”). It has come to our client’s attention recently that you are using the Nintendo trademark(s)/works in the hidden text/visible text/meta tags and/or title and/or links of the above-referenced sexually explicit Web site. This use is unauthorized, and we are writing to demand that you immediately cease and desist this infringement of Nintendo’s intellectual property rights.

What was Nintendo’s problem? Apparently one of the SuicideGirls site’s members, RuneLateralus (warning: adult content), listed in her profile that she enjoys playing Nintendo games such as Legend of Zelda and Metroid. Nintendo, determined to keep its squeaky clean image, has elected to have all Nintendo references removed from the offending site. As a society we can’t allow girls who pose naked for websites to have the right to list their favorite games, movies and TV shows. If we allow that, what will be next? Next they’ll be able to form original ideas or have personalities! I think we can all agree that that is a nightmare we don’t want to wake up to.

The letter, which can be read in its entirety here, was sent to the site from Perkins Coie, LLP, a law firm representing Nintendo’s insane legal agenda. Doing a little research, I have found that Lockergnome.com heavily features use of the word “poop” and the term, “Super Mario Bros.”

I hope Chris Pirillo has a good lawyer.
