Alleged Video Game Pirate Settles with Nintendo for $1.3 Million

According to the Sydney Morning Herald James Burt, 24, of Sinnamon Park in Queensland Austrailia has settled with Nintendo out of court for $1.6 million Australian (1.5 mill settlement and a 100k in legal fees).

This is because he allegedly leaked the new Super Mario brothers for Wii a week before its release in Australia.

Lets all just take a second, read that over a couple of times, and think about how familiar this type of legal action sounds, and how well it worked out for that sector of the entertainment industry.
