Warez Sites Sued by Video Game Companies


12 video game makers have come together to sue four men, whom they accuse of pirating software and offering it on Warez sites. They are seeking to have the websites shut down, as well as monetary damages of up to $150,000 for each pirated title.

"While some believe there are no victims from piracy, they're wrong," said the president of a software advocacy group. "A video game is increasingly expensive to develop and each title involves the hard work of numerous individuals."

Video game companies involved in the suit include Activision, LucasArts, Electronic Arts, Microsoft, Midway Amusement Games and Capcom Entertainment.
