A Uruguayan Civil Court Judge recently ordered a major counterfeiter of Nintendo games to pay the company 2.5 million U.S. dollars in damages and legal expenses. We're not talking about a few downloaded ROMs or flash carts packed with emulators. The defender and three of his related corporations were deemed responsible for the sale of tens of thousands of counterfeit Nintendo games.

Counterfeiting on this scale hurts everyone. In China alone, piracy accounted for $762 million in stolen booty last year, which is no small sum of cash. It also makes baby kittens cry. People who make kitties cry should lose large amounts of money.
