Pokemon Company Sues Decade-long Pokemon Magazine on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

The Pokemon Company has filed a lawsuit against a longrunning unofficial magazine for printing images of Pokemon cards.

Beckett Pokémon Unofficial Collector has made newstands for over 10 years, keeping fans and avid collectors up-to-date with all the pocket monster shenanigans. Kotaku reveal that Nintendo/The Pokemon Company are set to sue publisher Beckett for priting images of cards without permission.

The The Pokémon Company has advertised in the publication before, so would know the format and topics covered, as well as letting the magazine run for over a decade.

Pikachu, I sue you.

Why now? Smilie

The former top user was Keven! You'd probably give birth to yourself 1000 times over until you sprout wings to fly away into the fading sun, that or you'd just turn into a lesbian. Who knows @_@ - L, 12/06/09

Oh FFS. Screw Nintendo (unless there's more to this story than there seems to be).

There probably is. It's not like companies randomly pick one of the hundreds of unofficial magazines every 10 years to sue.

That just doesn't happen. Ever. Smilie Pokémon World is still fine.

From what I heard Nintendo first asked them to stop but they didn't listen. Not sure if it's true.

SING IT WITH ME NOW! Iiiit's the A-me-ri-caaaan waaaaay!~~

It requires great courage to look at oneself honestly, and forge one's own path.

Seems like alot is being changed when it comes to japanese stoooooff. Like printed mangas online are being removed and all. D:
Where is the world heading toooo? AAAHHH!!!11 Smilie

Does this mean I have to stop using that pokemon card maker facebook app to make pokemon cards out of various friends, musicians, and politicians, or I'll get sued?

Ah damn it, he fell asleep again.
