In a recent report featured on Venture Beat the publication says that Nintendo of America is determined to make sure that Washington becomes tougher on intellectual property laws. The move comes after the company has been hit by a number of patent trolls and also the R4 card scandal on the Nintendo DS. Nintendo of America says they’ve hired Choe Groves lobbyist Jennifer Groves in a renewed effort to crack down on intellectual property laws.
The publisher has officially hired Washington lobbying firm Choe Groves Consulting, according to Politico. Nintendo wants the federal government to get tougher on intellectual property laws, international trade, and piracy, and Choe Groves will try to convince the people in Washington, D.C. to take up that cause. These are issues that plague all kinds of entertainment companies, and Nintendo has an obvious interest in seeing legislators add more protection for content creators.
