The highest court in the EU, The Court of Justice of the European Union, says that Nintendo's anti-piracy product security is lawful. The decision was handed down today for the current running PC Box case in Milan. While the case has yet to be resolved, Nintendo are happy with the court's call.
What this all boils down to is that that Nintendo has a case here, and this will eventually help them get the word out that modding tech like PC Box's product go against copyright laws.
This morning's release says that Nintendo will continue to move forward with the case. They say they are confident that the Milan Tribunal will determine that the sale of devices like PC box is unlawful.
For those that missed the news of the case, PC Box makes mod chips and game copiers that let users play unauthorized games on Nintendo systems by breaking encrypted unlock information.
