Judge Flavio Rabello prohibited the game from being imported, distributed, sold or promoted on Web sites or in stores in Latin America's largest nation, said Rio Grande do Sul state prosecutor Alcindo Bastos. Companies have 30 days to comply with the judge's order.

I kind of like this because it means that gaming is growing in Brazil now that companies are actually trying to import the games and some people are trying to stop "bad" games.

But its sad that only one judge is needed to ban a game in the entire country! Do your countries work like that too?
