These are supposed to prevent scratches on the Switch screen when docked.

It seems like blatant trademark infringement might be something CAG would want to avoid advertising, despite the fact that the IP holder necessitated the product with their myopic design.

 

edit: I wonder if these are made out of sheets and existing licensed products.  That would make for an interesting legal discussion.

I just bought the 2 pack of these microfiber sheets from Amazon and draped one over the screen side of my dock, they are the perfect size for covering the screen area when docking

Yeah I think these might just be fabric patterns that exist.

I don't think it necessarily gives them the right to resell with the characters but it's not that big of a deal.

We have a member here who makes them as well, and you can probably get them cheaper from him.  I bought one, and had it delivered 3 days after purchase, very happy with it!

Unless the fabric explicitly states "for non commercial use only" or something similar, there is no issue.

Nintendo has already made their money by issuing a license to the fabric maker. That license should extend to the person who purchased and used the fabric, seeing as they are not reproducing the copyrighted images.


Bored? Too much money than you know what to do with? Why not check out my Amazon Storefront? If you see anything you want, send me a PM! Make an offer, either monetary or trade! Over 2000 items, and more added daily!

I know these won't block the fans, but do these affect the heating of the switch? 
My switch gets pretty hot when docked. Fans usually kick on high while playing zelda. 

Wouldn't want to push the temps even more....

Yeah. I'm wondering about that.  It looks pretty decent anyway, so I just ordered one, but I may or may not use it often if causes hardware/fan issues.

Not a big fan of the designs.

Wouldn't a traditional glass screen protector be the more ideal choice?

Or are you all buying these in addition to a screen protector?

The system produces enough heat the adhesive will come loose as I understand it.

Not if you let it sit for a period of time (I've heard anywhere from a few hours to a full 24) so it sets correctly before docking.

Damn I wish I saw this before I bought the one from Etsy. Would rather help a cag out than a random person. Will keep in mind for the future.

I heard we should avoid putting all skins on the system until they figure out why they're catching fire.. Or was that just for the zelda one from Nintendo?

You don't scratch the front, now you're scratching the back.

Ever since I put the one i made on my dock the back got 2 small scratches.

Better than the screen? sure but now the back is getting scratched... so yeah... this sucks

Nintendo has already made their money by issuing a license to the fabric maker. That license should extend to the person who purchased and used the fabric, seeing as they are not reproducing the copyrighted images.


Nintendo is extremely aggressive about its IP. YouTube content that likely (IMO) would fall under fair use is a good example of this.

Lawsuits with big liability are scary. Even if the lawsuit seems merit less.

Nintendo just hates YouTubers. This is not breaking any laws. If they had a problem with it they would just ask Etsy to remove the listing. This is basically like someone buying a Nintendo product and reselling it on Ebay and we clearly know they have no problem with that.

Good lord, its fucking etsy...chill.

Trademark infringement and other illegal activities actively support terrorists, like ISIS, so excuse us if we don't want to funnel money to ISIS sympathizers on Etsy.

This guy's Simpson's avatar looks kind of Arabic so I wouldn't trust him, likely ISIS sympathizer. 

 

 

Anyway, if any of you degenerates does get one of these I recommend putting lotion in your sock before use and washing after each use.

Damn, I guess that's why all these companies haven't gone after all the copyright infringements on Etsy...they don't want to have to fear the wrath of ISIS anymore than they already have to. Thanks for the info, I knew there was a reason I had never purchased anything off Etsy, even though they've been selling cool trademarked stuff like this for years. But to think, we have one of these ISIS sympathizers selling their trademark infringement items on our very boards.  :shame:
