A women in the UK has been found guilty of pirating a game (Dream Pinball 3D) over a P2P network and has been fined R228 601.
What makes this even worse is that the game has received reviews ranging from 3.8/10 to 7.9/10â€¦
However that is no excuse for piracy and especially when there is a demo stage of the game available.
Hopefully this is the first in a long line of convictions that will send the right message to the people out there. Gaming is not a right and if you don’t feel the game is worth the selling price then don’t buy it. It’s really that simple and there is no excuse for being a filthy pirate.
Though even I have to admit that the fine is a little heavy, you can be she is going to think twice before doing that again.
