I think its the "license" that they were selling above initial HW purchase that got Nintendo in a tizz.
I draw the line there. Reverse engineer by all means but making a buck out of it is not looked upon very kindly in the Emulation Community.

I frequently use microphone pre-amps, compressors, and microphones. Certain of these products are popular recipients of after-market "mods", so when I read the thread title my initial association was to that, and I thought "so what's the big deal?"
I'm not familiar enough with the issue apropos of video game consoles, etc., but at first blush it looks like Team Xecutor was infringing on the intellectual property rights of Nintendo. Stealing IP is illegal (and scummy), so nabbing the thieves is good, right?

At least you have good taste in vintage games judging by your handle. Due to chuck e cheese closing recently as a result of coronavirus I recently bought an arcade console on amazon for about 250, preloaded with roms and emus. Its a blast and id recommend it to anyone. Oh, and the MIT guys ... they probably were doing nothing new except creating a documentary. Ive had most arcade and console roms available via newsgroups until around 2010 when I stopped collecting them. The only old console i maintain is dreamcast.
