Why would ISPs work with Nintendo on that? If people start seeing ISPs giving away personal information, people are going to go to different ISPs.
All signatures are offensive!

I don't know if they give away Information but they will give you a copyright strike.

They're going after people downloading Wii U games? Really? That's where they are worried about losing money?

Let's hope Viacom can find that notorious Laserdisc bootlegger next.

Guess this is what they're doing with their online multiplayer fee revenue. Going after pirates while committing an act very similar to piracy to get the money.
Putting basic functionality of a system like online multiplayer and the ability to back up data behind a premium membership shows little faith in it.

it doesnt take much
Companies just have to put in a request to the ISP's or can hire a third party company to delegate and track their IPs.
Sony does it, Nintendo does it, Microsoft does, almost everyone does it.
Its nothing new, it been happening for over a decade now.
I can also tell you its harder for them to track anything pre-gamecube
Killing Backlog: Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD, Dragon Quest XI, Super Smash Bros Ultimate.

All isps can do at least in canada is send you a letter and slap you on the wrists. You might get throttled at most. You have to do a lot more than just download games to get in any kind of trouble

they can be held accountable if they do not cooperate

it's not something that happens often since generally the cost of tracking someone down and taking them to court over piracy isn't worth it, but it can theoretically happen

but yeah generally speaking your isp dgaf what you do as long as you're paying them, they'll throw you under a bus to save themselves, but if nobodys bothering them they don't care
I was right about Kencineroar. I was right about the Grinch leak being fake. I was right about no Rex. I was right about spirits deconfirming.
