Nokia caught promoting Nintendo emulation in commercial

Oops! Nokia has gotten itself into trouble after releasing a commercial that shows a chap playing NES, SNES and Spectrum games on his mobile phone. The advert boasts about using emulators on Nokia products, with the implication that users can simply download any ROM they like for free, despite the fact it's not always considered strictly legal.

The commercial has been pulled and Nintendo is currently investigating the situation. With the whole legal murkiness surrounding emulation, this is clearly not something Nintendo would want advertised, and Nokia really ought to have known better. Showing a man playing Super Mario World on his cell like it's no big deal is a pretty stupid move.

The smell of lawsuits hangs in the air.
