Mario Pirate Settles For 1.5 Million

A pre-release leak of New Super Mario Bros Wii will cost a gaming pirate 1.5 million dollars.


A Queensland, Australia man who leaked New Super Mario Bros Wii on the internet a week before the game launched will pay Nintendo 1.5 million dollars in damages. The man, James Burt, 24, was traced by what Nintendo referred to as "sophisticated technological forensics" and was ordered to allow Nintendo access to his email accounts, websites, and web accounts. Burt will also be required to pay Nintendo's legal bill of $100,000.
Nintendo Australia managing director Rose Lappin commented on the situation, calling the leak a mar on the game's release, especially since the Australia release came before other countries. Lappin said, "It wasn't just an Australian issue, it was a global issue. There was thousands and thousands of downloads, at a major cost to us and the industry really. It's not just about us. It's about retailers and if they can't sell the games then they have to bear the costs associated with that. Once it's on the internet it's anyone's really."

They can do what they want, but no one can stop a game from being leaked, a program from being cracked, or a CD from being leaked. Not in this modern age of P2P.

That being said, I do agree with Nintendo's actions. Just saying that their actions are futile in the grand scheme of things.

its true. Even this guy got busted doesnt mean it will end. its sad that it will continue rly. cuz Nintendo does make a point about them not just taking from them but from the companies who sell the product.
tho I bet this guy wont do it again lol

I wonder if Nintendo is even covering their losses on this case.
