The man was accused of selling memory card full of pirated Nintendo games for both Switch both for NES. The resolution of the case took place just in recent days, and saw the victory of the Great N: the judge prohibited Moreno from selling, renting, giving or distributing unauthorized copies of Nintendo's works, or infringing their copyright.

Man has also been warned against challenging the validity or vulnerability of any intellectual property of Nintendo in all present and future forms. Moreno had to submit a written certification to Nintendo, declaring that they no longer have software or devices that could circumvent the security measures of the games or systems of the Kyoto house, but no fines were imposed, and both sides involved they had to pay their own legal fees.
