Pokemon TCG Events Canceled due to Blackmail Threat

A blackmail letter threatening to disrupt an event featuring the popular Pokemon character has led its organizer to cancel several shows, officials at Pokemon Company said.

The Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) has started investigating the case on suspicion of forcible obstruction of business.

"We thought the safety of our customers is our top priority. We deeply apologize for the cancellation," a company spokesman said.

Pokemon Company, based in Tokyo's Chiyoda-ku, announced it will cancel Pokemon card game events that were slated to be held in Tokyo, Nagoya and Fukuoka between April 12 and 29.

The announcement came after the company received an anonymous letter threatening to disrupt the Pokemon event that was slated to be held in Tokyo on April 12 and 13.

Though the letter only referred to the Tokyo venue, the company decided to also cancel Pokemon events that were scheduled to be held in Nagoya on April 20 and in Fukuoka on April 29.

Nintendo and Pokemon USA Take on TCG Counterfeiters

Nintendo and Pokemon USA have just concluded a campaign to stop card counterfeiters in what is apparently a multi-million dollar industry counterfeiting Pokemon trading cards.

On March 26, law enforcement officials in New York raided seven stores known to be selling fraudulent Pokemon Trading Card Game merchandise. Thousands of products were seized, and several arrests were made. In early April, one action at a production facility in China secured nearly 1.2 million counterfeit cards and investigations continue.

During the past 16 months, more than 47 million counterfeit products have been seized at production facilities in Thailand, Singapore, Poland, Italy, the Czech Republic, Australia and China. One 2007 seizure in China netted more than 26 million illegally produced cards.

Nintendo says that it, along with Pokemon, will continue to target the retailers and manufacturers trafficking in counterfeit Pokemon product.

“Pokemon wants to send a message to importers and producers that we will not stand for the distribution of fraudulent Pokmon product,” says Pokemon spokesperson, J.C. Smith. “Pokemon is committed to ensuring our fans receive the quality product they've come to expect.”

FCC Fines WCIU-TV $16.5K Over Pokemon Characters Appearing in Ads

A Chicago TV station got burned by limited-edition Pokemon Eggo waffles and kicked by Fruit by the Foot. The Federal Communications Commission Friday proposed fining the station, WCIU-TV, $16,500 for a series of violations of its limits on commercials during kids’ TV shows, including six program-length commercials.

Chicago Station Aired Ads for Limited-Edition Pokemon Eggo Waffles, General Mills 'Fruit by the Foot'

The FCC said any appearance of a character from a TV show in a commercial placed within that show turns the whole program into a commercial.

Six of those program-length commercials involved Pokemon, but let's let the FCC's Media Bureau, with some help from the station, describe it: "The licensee stated that on four occasions, the station aired a commercial for Eggo waffles containing ‘fleeting images’ of a Pokemon character during the Pokemon program," the bureau said in its notice proposing the fine.

"According to the licensee’s description, a Pokemon character appeared during the commercial and transformed 'into an embossed image of itself on several Eggo waffles' while the announcer stated, 'And look out for limited-edition Pokemon Eggo waffles,’” the Media Bureau continued. “‘You can catch ‘em all.' Further, the licensee reported that on two occasions, the station aired a commercial for a General Mills 'Fruit by the Foot' product containing a 'fleeting appearance' by a Pokemon character during the Pokemon program.”

The station argued that the appearances were fleeting, minor, would not have harmed a child viewer and didn't turn the shows into commercials. The FCC disagreed.
