Pirates, don’t try this at home

James Burt, a 24-year-old Australian man who illegally uploaded his purchased copy of New Super Mario Bros. Wii to the internet, is faced with a AUD$1.5 million fine to Nintendo along with additional court charges. Nintendo Australia claims that the game was downloaded approximately 50,000 times after he bought the game from the retail store.

Burt offered words of wisdom to others in the gaming community – “Don’t do what I did.”
