Nintendo has sent a cease and desist request to Valve for prevent Dolphin from being published on Steama popular emulator for GameCube and Wii games.
The news was reported by PCGameron whose columns we read that the Japanese company has threatened legal action against Valve in case the emulator was distributed via Steam. According to Nintendo, the Dolphin emulator violates the company’s intellectual property. Valve has not officially commented on the matter, however the product page on Steam has disappeared.
The authors of Dolphin, however, have stated that the release of the emulator on Steam has been postponed indefinitely. “Valve has notified us that Nintendo has issued a ‘cease and desist’ citing the DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act), therefore Dolphin has been removed from Steam until the matter is resolved,” a statement read. “We are evaluating our options and will try to provide a more in-depth response in the immediate future.”
