A California man who started up a Lineage 2 emulator must have thought hed never get caught. He ignored NC Soft's warnings and, probably, over a cold beer, joked with his friends undoubtedly saying "wtf they gonna do?!"

Was probably fun while it lasted, but in the end....pwned by the FBI!

I think his biggest mistake was that he was making money in the situation. He should have taken his nice little nest egg from the first couple months before they asked him to stop and not look back.

Yep, other than that they don't care. The game companies might, but the authorities got bigger fish to catch. If he wasn't making money (at least that much), he'd still be running it today.
