Nintendo has banned a fan from releasing a book with walkthroughs of classic games

Painter Philip Summers planned to pamper fans Nintendo a large book containing walkthroughs of the company’s classic games and illustrations by the author.

The reason, as you might guess, lies in the policy of Nintendo, which regarded all this as earning on someone else’s intellectual property.

But if Philip only needs to return the money to the depositors, then the programmers will have to answer in court and, most likely, he will oblige them to pay an impressive amount.
