    @iNFiNiTY: I'm sure Ninty watches this site, but I just said that I doubt that they made accounts to catch that guy.

    Ahhh true. He did have a legit copy of the game, but does that make you not a pirate if you are just a supplier? I suppose its down to peoples views...

    Funny cause all I saw was, "Oh yeah, a 1.5 trillion dollar company can't do anything. :roll:" meaning, they can do something. He said nothing about they are going to sue you to for talking about their games which is just stupid to think that. Obviously Nintendo can do something if illegal activity has occurred, just like anyone else, its just the people with more money have more power.

    I agree. If you downloaded it you already have a modded Wii, therefore you were likely NOT going to buy it (with a few exceptions). It's more likely if 10,000 downloaded his copy out of those Nintendo lost probably 30 sales... it sounds like they are trying to blame him for Wii piracy which isn't fair.

    I feel sorry for the guy, but what was he thinking? At least everyone knows that Nintendo has eyes on this forum.

    Its arguable and there's no point making up statistics about it. But i can tell you for certain you are completely underestimating how many people downloaded it. Regardless i don't believe such a tiny percentage would completely skip playing one of the biggest wii titles just because they couldn't get it for free.

    I feel sorry for the guy. But i doubt that this will affect the whole piracy scene, it never comes to an end, just look at the music and movie industry, its about 8 years since we saw the first pirated music or movies at the web, and how far did it go, where they able to stop the pirating scene? Not as far as i knows.

    Yep you're going to jail. Might not want to drop the soap from what tv says, but hey you can tell us if it's anything like that. All because you discussed a game... tsk tsk you should be ashamed of yourself!

    OK, I understood most of that... Should my geekyness scare me? [​IMG]

    I know C++ and actionscript 2.0 (some 3.0), so that probably helped, and I'm a Linux user... crap, I gotta get out more. Before I start wanting to hack the school server....

    ...Hmm, I wonder... [​IMG]
