According to a report on GameCyte, a second defendant in Activision’s campaign of secret lawsuits against alleged game pirates has spoken out, albeit briefly.
The news that Activision secretly sued a half-dozen private citizens for pirating its games was broken on GamePolitics last Friday.
As did a previous defendant, the unnamed pirate said that he too paid Activision much less than the huge amount listed in court documents. Apparently afraid to go into any sort of detail, he simply told GameCyte:
I wasn’t doing anything more than an average college student does with torrents or MP3s, so it’s surprising companies like this are wasting time on people with little money.
GP: Interesting comments. It would seem that Activision owes consumers an explanation of just what went on with these cases.
