Yesterday, we reported on the rather peculiar story that a flash game made by the United States Environmental Protection Agency appeared to have stolen music from Nintendo. "Recycle City Challenge" is a simple point and click educational game that was, for some reason, set to the tune of the Yoshi's Island DS Underground Theme. Once the story began circulating online, it quickly caught the attention of the US government.

Initially, the Environmental Protection Agency put out a statement clarifying that the game was made by contractor. The US government branch promised to reach out to the contractor to find out if they received permission from Nintendo first. I think you can guess the answer for yourself. A little while later, the music was pulled from the game, leaving it silent. Look's like that's the end of that.
