Trying to get as far away as possible from this mess as quickly as possible. Cant really blame the guy but from the sounds of it, he doesn't have anything to worry about
And still it goes on
The NeoGaf thread is still finding places its ripped stuff from, the most hilarious of which is Beetlejuice.

Ignorance is not a defense when you have broken the law.
I just finished scouring the corners of the internet to find information about this controversy, and what I found was hilarious, shocking, and mind-numbing.
Steve Bovis even goes as far as to pretend to be a beta-tester AND his daughter in forums. You can tell it's him because of the excessive "..................." and "hahahahahaha" remarks found in posts.
For a good archive of every game he stole from, including side-by-side comparisons:
Seems he's been stealing since 1995.
And dear god, watch the ending movie.
