My favorite part about this is that you can get a smw cart to dump itself to the screen with some convoluted controller inputs. With Nintendo's view that coping devices are illegal, logically they would consider the TV, SNES, controllers, multitaps, SMW cart itself, and the keyboard-PC-hexeditor "an illegal device". Guess we all need to turn in those items to the authorities because they're illegal to own...

But you never signed any EULA that forbids you from doing those things. The SNES and the cartridge came from the time when EULAs were not required in order to play games. Nintendo loses :P

I'm entertaining Nintendo's flawed logic that fact that performing an illegal act with a device makes the device itself illegal to own. By Nintendo's logic, practically all worldly items are illegal because they could be used to commit illegal acts.

Wow, now you gave me an idea of a dystopian society where Nintendo rules the world and forces people to play their games.

A fictional aversion-therapy technique from A Clockwork Orange.

Once I learned it was from a novel, I did a web search.

It's a fictional name for a real technique that has been used, among other places, as part of "pray away the gay" therapy. It approaches political issues that I for one would rather not discuss in this topic.

Wow, what an association from just a little notion.

I'd just like to know to who this technique would be applied and against what.

Well, I was more referring to the movie, but yes, probably not for discussion here.
