The “Grand Theft Auto” is a popular video game series that was developed by Take-Two Interactive Software. The series has been routinely acclaimed and included among the greatest and best-selling video games. On top of this, in 2018, the Take-two Interactive Software received a preliminary ruling from a federal judge to stop a Georgia man from selling tools that claim to allow players to cheat at the most popular video game.
Cheating Program for GTA
David Zipperer is suspected of selling software packages called Menyoo and Absolute. It enabled users of the “Grand Theft Auto V” multiplayer component Grand Theft Auto Online cheat through changing the game for their own gain or to “grief” other players by modifying their gameplay without their consent. As per Take-Two affirmed that they will continue to pursue legal action to prevent “obstruction” to its multiplayer gaming community.
Consequences of Infringement
The Take-Two charged David Zipperer for selling programs which help players cheat at Grand Theft Auto.
According to US District Judge Louis Stanton in Manhattan, Take-Two would probably prove Zipperer violated its copyright for “Grand Theft Auto V.” Moreover, his programs would seriously impair the company’s sales and reputation by preventing customers from purchasing its video games.
