...I don't think that's morally wrong. Unfair? Maybe. 2.5 Millions are pennies in the eyes of Nintendo. So the guy that stole that money was indeed unfair, but I don't think he left anybody homeless or in big trouble.

I just hate it when corporations fight over pennies, no matter how wrong stealing is.

2.5 Million is A LOT of money. Nintendo is the smallest of the three console makers, and the N64-Gamecube era was a disastrous one- do you really think they care so little about THAT kind of money?

I don't know what your stance is on Nintendo, but criticizing them for not being OK with losing enormous sums of money is ridiculous. Piracy is despicable, and if you think otherwise then you're just adding to the problem.
