Pirated Nintendo Games Seller to Face Jail Time

According to the Croydon Guardian (http://www.croydonguardian.co.uk/news/9995458.Counterfeit_Nintendo_games_seller_estimated_to_have_made_about___600_000/), a man who created and sold around $12 million worth of counterfeit Nintendo games online is now facing jail time. Justin Success Brooks sold thousands of unauthorized cartridges—including games like Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games—for the DS, DSi, and Nintendo Wii.

He made the sales between 2009-2011, and pleaded guilty to seven charges on Friday before the court. He’s been charged with fraudulent trading, supplying an article to use in fraud, unauthorized possession of goods bearing a trademark, and unauthorized use of a trademark.

Brooks earned over $950,000 selling the games, and awaits sentencing on November 9th.

Faith likes games and books and cake and writing and Lara Croft, not necessarily in that order. She also thinks a Skylanders cartoon show is a really, REALLY good idea...
