If the hacking community go after Nintendo, then unless they are reporting vulnerabilities for bounties rewards, then they too will be rightfully dragged through the courts if caught.But instead they've made a fair portion of the hacking community angry at them. Nintendo needed to take the high ground, shut the offender down and prevent them from restarting. Instead they screwed the guy over with prison time and imposed a debt he'll never recover from.
Yeah THAT was a brilliant move...
This isn't 'tha haxx0rs wil get um!' That's not how it works. And almost all the actual hackers are in it either for criminally getting money or work for state actors.
As for Bowser? He wasn't some hobby hacker just messing about and trying to share some enjoyment. He was selling the ability to use stolen property. He knew exactly what he was doing.
