Sony stabs pirates

Sony Computer Entertainment Australia (SCE) has won a battle in the ongoing war against games pirates, with the Federal Court awarding indemnity costs against three people found to have imported and sold pirate PlayStation software.

Sony is now entitled to recover the full costs of litigation from Mohamed Dannoun, Janan Diab and Ahmad Haddad, which is estimated to be around $150,000 by SCE lawyers Allens Arthur Robinson. The amount is the first substantial fine to be awarded in Sony's crackdown against games pirates.

In January last year, SCE was given leave to take action against market operator Paddy's Markets for allowing Mohamed Dannoun to sell pirated copies of its PlayStation computer games. This was settled in August, when the company teamed up with the market operator to stamp out software piracy.

Federal Court Judge Justice Lindgren granted leave for SCE to include the operator as an additional respondent to Dannoun, who was ordered to pay a fine of $3500 plus indemnities after he was found selling illegal games in breach of court orders.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
