Free Software Foundation campaigns against Nintendo 3DS

Filed under
OSS

Hard on the heels of the Free Software Foundation's Day Against DRM earlier this month, the advocacy organisation last week launched a new campaign targeting the Nintendo 3DS.

"The Nintendo 3DS comes with Terms of Service (TOS) that should not be accepted," wrote the group's campaign manager, Joshua Gay. "In fact, the TOS are so unbelievable that we have included a more detailed summary of them on a separate page."

Top of the FSF's list of complaints, for example, is that the device's TOS "makes a threat that Nintendo will brick your device if you use your 3DS in a way that they do not approve," Gay explained.
