I bought this recently on Ebay, the official version, not the bad 3rd party version.

But i heard it was not ment outside Japan, which i guess would be true since this was given as a gift to members of Nintendo or something. But... am i a criminal if i plan to use this?. Because i so want to game the bleep out of Mega Man X2 with this controller!

No, you aren't a criminal. It's perfectly legal to use it. Why wouldn't it be in the first place, it's a controller? smilie

Well its either way their fault for not selling it officially it. But sometimes the copyright law can be pretty stupid smilie.

So i guess this is the case where i could sorta use that argument.

There is nothing illegal about importing a controller from Japan. It has absolutely nothing to do with copywrights. The only issue is a potential compatability one where it might not work with a non-Japanese system. But I have absolutely no reason to believe a controller wouldn't be universal between regions.

Owning a product shouldn't go against copyright laws?
