Epic Sinks Gears 2 Pirate/Modder in Court

A St. Louis modder/reseller brazen enough to advertise early copies of Gears of War 2 out in the open on Craigslist just got his ass handed to him in court. Technically, it's a settlement, but looking at the terms, this guy sued for peace with an unconditional surrender to Epic Games.

Piracy is not theft.

Theft removes the original. Piracy makes a copy.

I'm sorry but stealing is stealing and there's no other term for what he did.

5 years ago you would have to steal a game from the store couse the internet was just too slow to download seriously.

just because you can now download them from the net doesnt change the fact that you stole it.

Piracy is robbery committed at sea, or sometimes on shore, without a commission from a sovereign nation.
