Lineage II: FBI Shares Info
Online IP Theft Is Not a Game
The official site for Lineage II has been updated with a link to the FBI site. On this site the FBI talks about the recent shutdown of a private Lineage II server.
ÂThey donÂt think that a company is going to come after them at any point,Â says Christopher Thompson, a special agent on a cyber squad in the FBIÂs office in Austin, Texas. ÂHe said he was going to stop doing it and he didnÂt.Â
So the company, which has offices in Austin, called the FBI. The suspect was apparently lining his own pockets from ÂdonationsÂ and ads on his site while his pirated version of the game, ÂLineage II,Â was siphoning $750,000 a month in potential revenues from the company.
