GameCube Pwned By Pirate

In a dubious first for the GameCube in the UK, its software has actually been the focus of a software pirate. Yes, you read that correctly. Someone has actually pirated GameCube games, according to a report by Gamasutra. The incident occurred in merry old England in the town of Staffordshire. A joint effort between the ELSPA (Entertainment and Leisure Software Publishers Association) and local city police pounced on the profitable program pirate. Stuart Eardley was the proprietor of a store named Media Weeble. The surprise for law enforcement officials was the discovery of 220 illegal copies of GameCube game disks in his establishment. There were also other pirated copies of PC and console games found. Eardley was sentenced to 240 hours of community service and fined £3300 ($5770) for his errant ways. This just goes to show that you can’t mess with Mario and get away with it.
