That Evony hacker who showed up to federal court in sweat pants will likely be wearing them a lot longer – if not a barrel. A judge rather quickly ruled against him, finding that selling auto-playing bots and game maps violated Evony’s copyrights, and awarded the game’s owners $US300,000.
The strategy game Evony, infamous for its salacious, cleavage-filled ads, has done some good. The Facebook version of the game is now credited with helping to save the life of a disabled man.
