Apple shames unethical mineral suppliers, but will Nintendo do the same?

Managed to crawl in as "Awesome Baby Names"
Apple doesn't have the most triumphant reputation for vetting the products found in its App Store, and it looks as though another piece of copyrighted material managed to slip through the badly worn net.
