Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Nintendo has had another emulation development project booted off the Web. The sEMUf emulator was shut down this weekend due to unspecified "legal action from Nintendo", according to the project's site, here. The project's programmers admitted that development "has been stopped and will not continue". At this stage it is not clear whether Nintendo's legal threat was targetted at the developers themselves or their ISP -- as was the case with emulator writer Jerremy Koot's Snes9x.com site just over a week ago (see Nintendo pursues emulator sites and Snes9x.com host explains actions). The sEMUf site was hosted not by a traditional ISP but by Australian PC-laptop connectivity company T-Linx, but Nintendo's approach, citing their view that emulators are illegal -- a highly questionable point -- is likely to have been the same. ® See alsoNintendo profit hits six-year high
