Nintendo issued an injunction against a popular social media influencer who used Pokémon branding and images in their handle and products. While the influencer formerly known as “Pokeprincxss” acknowledges her legal flaws, she also feels that she has been attacked by Nintendo for a very specific reason.
“Nintendo doesn’t want people to think that I’m in any way connected with them or that I’m in a partnership with them, and it all depends on being a grown entertainer,” the now renamed “Digitalprincxss” “says in a recent YouTube video that addresses the issue. “Although there are other people who have ‘poke’ in their name and make money from it … I think that literally has to do with being an adult entertainer because they are not adult entertainers.”
Digitalprincxss has 1.9 million followers on Tiktok and significant followers on other public social media accounts. But she also hosts a subscription-based OnlyFans page that costs $ 17 a month and has “access to all of my NSFW photos / videos I post daily” and “uncensored content that I normally take you with on Instagram / Twitter.” tease ”promises.
While the name Pokeprincxss goes back eight years, Digitalprincxss believes it may have drawn Nintendo’s legal wrath months ago when it tried to label the name via LegalZoom, with an application in which the brand was used for adult entertainment was noted. Digitalprincxss has also been selling shirts and other merchandise using Pokéballs and other copyrighted Nintendo images in recent months. The proceeds from these sales have now been returned to Nintendo, she says.
“There are so many other people selling Pokémon-related things like fanart and stuff. That’s why I didn’t see anything wrong with it, ”says Digitalprincxss in the video. “Nintendo is a family-friendly company, so they don’t want it to ruin their reputation or anything if people think they and I are connected …” Of course that sucks, but from a business perspective, I have to understand. ”
Despite the legal problems, Digitalprincxss says she has no bad will towards Nintendo and takes full responsibility for being “young and stupid” on this matter. “I’m not going to cancel or go against Nintendo at all,” she said. “At the end of the day, I see it like a business thing.”
Nintendo has not yet responded to a request from Ars Technica for comment. However, the company has a long history of diligently protecting its trademarks and copyrighted content online. It ranges from ROM sales sites to mod chip manufacturers to fangame manufacturers and organizers of livestream game tournaments.
