Neil Stanley Higgs - the Bristolian who runs MrModChips selling, well, mod chips - has walked free from court. Higgs is the man who The Sun labelled "A COMPUTER geek who made £1million selling illegal video game chips from his bedroom" faced up to two years in gaol (okay, 'jail'). The case centred on Xbox 360 modchips.
Higgs was allowed to leave the High Court as a free man based on the judgement of Lord Justice Jacob. This is the same judge who had ruled in 2007 that, "Merely making a program which will emulate another but which in no way involves copying the program code or any of the program's graphics is legitimate."
