Nintendo Wins Lawsuit Against Mario Kart-Themed Tour Service

If you've ever toured Tokyo's streets, you might have noticed people in Mario cosplay speeding past you on go-karts. Nintendo definitely noticed and in early 2017 filed a lawsuit against tourism company "MariCar" for copyright infringement. Today, a Tokyo court determined that MariCar was infringing on Nintendo's copyrights and has forced the company to pay 10 million yen to the gaming giant.

MariCar's business model was centered around giving people tours of Tokyo on go-karts while dressing them up in various outfits, not necessarily limited to but certainly focusing on Mario-themed outfits. Nintendo filed a complaint with the Japanese patent office in 2017, stating that MariCar as a name was deliberately meant to invoke Mario Kart. The patent office disagreed and dismissed the claim last year, stating that "MariCar" is not a widely recognized abbreviation of Mario Kart.
