Nintendo IP rampant on Windows Phone

A flood of apps illicitly using Nintendo IP have appeared on the Windows Store.

According to BGR, apps like Mario Jump!, Bowser Town Defense, Pokemon Attack!, and Yoshijump are all available on Microsoft's new digital sales platform, breaking the rules of the marketplace.

While Microsoft has said it would take a strong stance against apps that violate copyright, it consistently places the responsibility for reporting such violations with the trademark holder.

"With regards to trademark infringement, with every app there is an option to report the app for violating the Windows Store's Terms of Use," a Microsoft spokesperson told Pocketgamer.
