iOS developer Jiang Zhi may have worked out how to sneak a copywright-defying Super Mario clone onto the App Store: make no reference to anything Nintendo in its title.

The games called 3D Cartoon Land: Safari. It's a fairly inocuous-sounding name,

Here's some screenshots:

How the hell did this get on the app store? I'm amazed and astounded. Maybe Nintendo should sue Apple now. :D

It got on the app store because apple doesn't check for copyright infringement. How could it? There is billions of game art out there and while this one is obvious, other cases are not.

Do you expect YouTube to prevent every video that infringes copyright to get up there?

This will be taken down in a day or two when Nintendo's lawyers file a complaint, as has other copyright infringement cases in the past. Nothing to see here, move along.

What cracks me up is if it was the other way around Nintendo making an Apple game clone Apple would be all over Nintendo with lawsuits. Yeah I love it when companies think that no rules or common morals apply to them.

Nintendo should now sue Apple. Let them have a taste of their own medicine. :)

Apple... game?

Oh, right. If a game is on a platform, the company that owns the platform is clearly the one that developed it. This Jiang person secretly works for Apple.

It would be so funny when Nintendo lost the lawsuit and millions of dollars in court fees, I agree.

Protip - Apple, not really responsible for completely non-affiliated developers infringing copyright. That would be like suing Sony because someone copied a movie on Blu Ray.

Exactly. One of the big iPhone VS Droid debates my friends and I had in the past was that Driod was better cause iPhone was strict about what free apps they allowed vs the Droid that let every app on. Nice to see Apple still holding to that standard.

Right, because how many people do you think would need to be in this 'team' for Apple to check every possible case of copyright infringement ever for every game submitted to the App store? Once again. This one is obvious. Others wouldn't be. It would be logistically impossible to proactively monitor an app store for copyright infringement.

Apple makes it easy to get infringing material removed. It has done its legal duty. Just like YouTube and Facebook and most other content platform holders do.

Well that's one of the reasons I like Nintendos stricter ways for there store, not just anything can get in, it might make me mad the cancell certain games or have a tough time bringing it over to US shops, but they have a way, so can apple

If Nintendo can get enough people to check every post on the MiiVerse forum from people who've abused the forum, Apple should be able to get enough people to check the name of the app and play the first level or so, or for a few minutes.

I feel sorry for the person with that job, because they would have had to have played (and remember) every single other game, movie, book and song made so they can tell if this new app they are testing infringes someone's copyright.

You wouldn't have to get one person thats why you get a team and different ones at that. One team that handles music, one team that handles books, one team that handles games etc. Really it just comes to down to pure laziness and the fact that they have soooo much more important stuff to spend their money on like every other company out there.

Uh no. Every single person on every single one of those teams would need to know every single bit of media ever produced to know if the thing they are looking at breached copyright.

What about a game that borrows an obscure pop song from Zimbabwe without permission? What about a song that contains samples from the Nier soundtrack without permission.

What you are expecting is impossible. Not lazy, impossible. A basic understanding of copyright law would have told you that. But no, you're taking wild guesses about the law and ignoring the facts.

Apple works to the same laws the governs YouTube. Reactive copyright monitoring, not proactive. It's the only system that is even possible

Why? Apple hasn't done anything wrong in the first place. It hasn't broken any laws, so why should it change the way it does business?

Do you think Nintendo should sue Microsoft because you can download a N64 emulator and play Super Mario 64 on your Windows PC?

Actually, don't answer that, you probably do.
