    Woman fined £16,000 for illegally downloading a game
    Pirates beware: developers could be about to bite back


    [​IMG]

    A British woman has been ordered to pay US game developer Topware Interactive £16,000 after illegally downloading one of its PC games Dream Pinball. Some experts are now warning the floodgates could be opening for other game (as well as music and film) companies to try to claim money from illegal file-sharers.

    As reported by MCV, the Patents County Court in London ordered the woman to pay damages of more than £6,000 and costs and reimbursements of £10,000 to Topware Interactive for downloading the game.

    We haven't played Dream Pinball, but we're guessing it probably isn't worth spending that much on.

    Awts! They are just claiming their own product which must purchased as normal trading not by just stealing.
