Nintendo Co said Thursday it has filed a lawsuit against a U.S. firm for selling devices that allow users to download and play pirated versions of the company’s game software. The lawsuit was filed Wednesday in the Western District of Washington against NXPGAME Inc after the company ignored repeated warnings from Nintendo to stop selling the so-called game copiers on its multiple websites.

"AP is reporting that Activision has countersued former Infinity Ward executives Jason West and Vince Zampella. Activision claims West & Zampella 'morphed from valued, responsible executives into insubordinate and self-serving schemers who attempted to hijack Activision's assets for their own personal gain and whose actions threatened both the future of the Call of Duty franchise and the future of Activision's (Infinity Ward) studio.'"

This follows Activision's firing of the execs earlier this year. Legal documents indicate that this legal dispute has caused delays in the production of Modern Warfare 3. Lawyers for the two fired execs say Activision's claims are ridiculous, citing Modern Warfare 2's overwhelming financial success. Meanwhile, it's rumored that EA is seeing the whole fiasco as an opportunity.

The Asahi Shimbun paper reports that author Manabu Miyazaki is suing the Fukuoka police for allegedly asking convenience stores to remove yakuza-related literature from their shelves.

According to Miyazaki, 73 manga volumes and three magazines had been removed from convenience store shelves in late December, with other stores soon following suit. Included in the list of removed material was a manga based on Miyazaki's own yakuza-themed memoirs. (Kotan published one of Miyazaki's books, Toppamono: Outlaw, Radical, Suspect, My Life In Japan's Underworld, in English.) Miyazaki, who said that these actions suppressed free speech, is demanding 5.5 million yen (about US$59,000) in damages. The Fukuoka police say that they were enforcing an ordinance meant to curtail the influence of the yakuza.
