1 Million Euro compensation for bypassing Nintendo copy protection
The Munich district court sentenced the operator of a German online shop to pay Nintendo a €1,000,000 compensation for selling so called “Slot 1″ cards which allowed buyers to play copied games on their Nintendo DS, bypassing the console’s copy protection.
Already in October 2010, the defendant was found guilty of illegally bypassing the device’s copy protection and requested detailed figures about the number of sold cards. Now the shop operator still has one month to call the court of appeals before the final conviction. This high compensation sum for sure will not only stop this shop operator but will probably also be a warning for others.
