I'm sure they found some loophole or some other way to slither away with it.

Or we're in for some headlines with PETA as the suspect for copying copyrighted material.

Nope, they didn't even ask Nintendo if it was chill. Nintendo has actually said it's in their legal department and they're most likely going to take action against this because it's basically a public attack on their franchise and could drastically reduce sales.

Lol no.

PETA's game is parody protected by fair use, so Game Freak can not sue them because of this.

However, what Game Freak can do is say that PETA is carrying out Trademark Tarnishment. Even so, PETA still has a strong case against Nintendo/Game Freak because PETA can claim Naked Licensing. The fact that Nintendo did not sue PETA the first time strengthens PETA's position because of this.

Also, that Naked Licensing won't work. Nintendo has won lawsuits in which a simple picture of their Pokemon was put up on a website without their permission on the game's release day. It's called the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

Copied off of Yahoo Answers, the holy grail of knowledge. The fair use act is actually violated in 3 different aspects.
> Nature of the copyrighted work.
Every Pokemon is copyrighted, along with numerous aspects of the game. Also, the game name is copyrighted itself. Nintendo has owned these copyrights for long periods of time.
> The amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole.
They made a game that uses hundreds of copyrighted materials without even attempting to deviate slightly. Imagine if I made a game called "Call of Duty: Modern Warefare" then copied all the assets and everything, but changed the dialogue to say "dickbutt" over and over, then called it a parody. I'd be sued to Hell.
> The effect of the use upon the potential market for, or value of, the copyrighted work.
This, combined with numerous other "parody" games that directly attack Nintendo, is no longer considered a simple parody, but an attempt to undermine their sales and profitability. It's no longer a commercial for a non-profit organization, it's an attack.

And the bottom of the Fair Use act:
"Copyright protects the particular way authors have expressed themselves. It does not extend to any ideas, systems, or factual information conveyed in a work.

The safest course is to get permission from the copyright owner before using copyrighted material. The Copyright Office cannot give this permission.

When it is impracticable to obtain permission, you should consider avoiding the use of copyrighted material unless you are confident that the doctrine of fair use would apply to the situation. The Copyright Office can neither determine whether a particular use may be considered fair nor advise on possible copyright violations. If there is any doubt, it is advisable to consult an attorney."

Depends on whether or not you can sue a parody.

Actually you can. Anyone who uses your copyrighted material without your permission is elligble for a lawsuit. Nobody usually does, because it's a dick move, but this is ****** up.

I think it's all right as long as you're not making money off of it. For example, Weird Al asks permission from every artist he parodies. In one case, he made a parody of "You're Beautiful" by James Blunt called "You're Pitiful." Blunt gave him permission, so he recorded the parody. However, Blunt's record company, Atlantic Records, refused to allow Yankovic to put the song in his album, so he put it up for free download on the Internet.

Around the world, helpless plants are chopped, blended, even eaten raw. Without voices, there is nothing they can do. Lettuce be their voices. People for the Ethical Treatment of Plants (PETP). Together, we can end their suffering.

My mother once told me: "Don't bother arguing with stupid people, they will only lower you to their level and beat you with experience."
