Nintendo Switch piracy domain names blocked

N

Popular video games and electronics company Nintendo has won an injunction in a UK Court. The company was fighting against two piracy domains. 

These domains were distributing pirated games that could be played on a Nintendo Console. These domains are NSW2U and NSWROM. Multiple domain names were made using these names with various different extensions such as NSW2U.xyz, NSW2U.org, NSW2U.com, NSW2U.net and NSWROM.com.

After the injunction, these domain names would be banned by most of the popular ISPs of the UK. A good news for all the game developers indeed!
