Caribbean Nation Can Now Legally Pirate Games

pflag.jpg Ever heard of Antigua and Barbuda? I have, but then I played the shit out of Sid Meier's Pirates (oh, the poignancy) when I was little, and have thus grown up knowing the names of a lot more tiny and insignificant Caribbean islands than I really should. Anyway, in a strange, strange ruling made by the World Trade Organisation with regards to a trade dispute over online gambling between them and the US, Antigua is now allowed to pirate US intellectual property. Including games. Legally. There's a catch (they can only produce $US 21 million worth annually), but if any of you are keen on some cheap games and drinks with umbrellas in them, you just found your ideal holiday spot.
