I don't think any countries banned Famiclones explicitly, what probably happened is that Nintendo chose to take legal action against the sale of Famiclones in certain markets but not others. But AFAIK, even in countries where Nintendo had a strong presence you could still find Famiclones if you knew where to look.

Even then, come 2005 or so, Nintendo had no legal power against famiclones with no bundled game or famiclones whose bundled multicart had only third-party games. Unlike copyrights, patents expire within a human lifetime.

If any country banned famiclones, it was part of a more general ban on video games, as Greece tried from 2002 to 2011 with Law 3037/2002, and as China tried from June 2000 through July 2015 with a console ban.

Good answer.
The reason why you were asking would help to understand why you were asking, and what you were asking for exactly, and if you were interested in anybody answering the question...
Your grammar made it sound as if you were asking if there were special hellraiser edition famiclones that were banned in catholic countries?

I would suggest that Ahmeto Fihhhters writes his question and a little elaboration in his native language, so that we see whether it's just the language barrier and whether he's generally able to write a coherent post or whether this is just some suspicious troll/spammer/whatever account.

After all, he registered in a developer's forum, but both of his posts had only something to do with Famiclones.

And even for someone who doesn't understand the language well, it's still illogical to just write "No" to a question if he's interested in a serious answer or to write the same thing twice in a row:

Maybe it was fight to Nintendo. This products it is supposed to be "Taiwanese people in Spain".

Maybe it was "gate movement".

It's my research.

Probarly it's a "gate".

Something looks very suspicious about this account.

I already pointed this out in the other thread, but since everyone ignores me I'll restate it.

This guy is a spammer. He just writes nonsense using words already found in the forums. We had plenty of such "newly intelligent" spammers lately; I also got bullshit PM from him too. Please stop responding to them.

IIRC, he was already banned on FamicomWorld for the exact same reason.
