#5 Marvel wants to know who leaked that Avengers: Age Of Ultron Trailer

Whoever leaked the trailer is going to pay it seems… Avengers: Age Of Ultron has already gone on to be the most viewed promo for any film the studio but with it being released earlier than expected it looks like this isn’t over quite yet.tumblr_m52l3br1fd1rpmhcs
It looks like the company is going to court to find out just who was responsible for that trailer leak, and they are determined to find out the culprit.
According to papers filed in a California federal court, Marvel wants Google to provide details of who someone using the name ‘John Gazelle’ is as that’s the user who posted the film to a Google Drive account, and the studio wants the IP address that’s associated with their YouTube and Google+ accounts.
The court filing issues issuance to Google “to identify an alleged infringer (or infringers) who posted content known as Avengers: Age of Ultron, which infringes copyright rights held by Marvel (the Infringing Content) on systems operated by Google without Marvel’s authorization”.
The identity of the “alleged infringer (or infringers)” will “only be used for the purpose of protecting Marvel’s rights under title
17 U.S.C.”
Whoever you are, John Gazelle, it’s best to start running now. They’ve got a Hulk.

#1 Region-free Consoles for Nintendo
In a Q&A on Nintendo’s official website Nintendo president Satoru Iwata addressed console region-locking in a Q&A session on Nintendo‘s official website, stating that unlocking the regions is “an issue that needs to be considered in the future.
This would be advantageous for both Nintendo and consumers if the region-locking was removed, but that unlocking the regions would lead to more issues that Nintendo would have to resolve.
Region-locking, he stated, was implemented because of reasons such as “a history of localization taking an extremely long time, a variety of marketing constraints and circumstances in each country, and the fact that the license needed to sell games have not always been granted globally.”
