use nintendo images in your promo materials

I’ve been emailed a lot with questions similar to this one that appeared on the LibGaming google group.

I do have the question of whether there are legalities of using
Nintendo images/wallpaper images (located throughout their website) for our first upcoming gaming event?

Eli Neiburger chimes in with a great response:

You are in the clear. I was told by GolinHarris, Nintendo’s Marketing Firm, that using their Intellectual Property in promotional materials for a free library event is allowed and legal. You are promoting their products. They love that. =) There is no legal issue here. This is allowed, and even encouraged, by the rightsholders. Let me know if you have any other questions about this!
