Nintendo Sends DMCA to Wii/Game Cube Emulator Dolphin Ahead of Steam Launch

Two months ago, the team behind Dolphin (the Wii and GameCube emulator for PC) announced its goal to release the software on Steam.That plan always felt shaky, as it risked drawing the ire of Nintendo.

The Japanese corporation has certainly long been aware of Dolphin since the emulator first launched in 2003 and became open source in 2008, but pushing it on a big PC platform like Steam was bound to attract its notoriously trigger-happy lawyers.Unfortunately, that's exactly what happened.

Earlier today, the Dolphin team explained in a brief post that the Steam release had been indefinitely postponed after Nintendo sent a DMCA to Valve, stating that the software unlawfully circumvents a technological measure to access a work protected by the Copyright Act.

As a result, the Dolphin Steam page has been taken down. The team said they are exploring various options to settle the matter.Unfortunately, there seem to be only a couple of ways this could go.
