Nintendo has begun pulling down content that infringes on its valuable intellectual property (in this case, Mario) from the Sony PlayStation 4 game "Dreams".

Is this just the beginning?

Why did Nintendo act now?

And if such creations are illegal, why do so many already appear in Dreams (and elsewhere on the Internet)?

The value of infringement is in the eye of the beholder (TM - Hasbro)...in Virtual Legality.
