GTA V’s Take-Two Settles Lawsuit with Popular Cheat Maker
With a consent judgment issued by a New York federal court, Take-Two Interactive has settled its case with a prominent GTA V cheat maker. The Georgia man, one of the key people behind the ‘Menyoo’ and ‘Absolute’ cheats, allegedly earned more than $100,000 from the copyright-infringing activities. The company has filed several lawsuits in the US and abroad, accusing alleged cheat makers and sellers of copyright infringement. One case, filed at a New York court targeted Georgia resident David Zipperer, who was accused of working on and distributing the ‘Menyoo’ and ‘Absolute’ cheats. According to the game company, Zipperer repeatedly misled the Court regarding his financial situation, as he claimed he "doesn't have the money and used earned money to support his family". Through a subpoena, they found out that the cheat maker earned at least $100,000, possibly much more. Some of these profits were spent on expensive electronic equipment and other personal purchases.
