Tim Blair reminds us that everything costs something, in this case an upload costs 1.6 million:

A MAN who bragged about illegally uploading a Super Mario Bros computer game to the internet yesterday agreed to pay manufacturer Nintendo $1.6 million in a landmark anti-piracy court settlement.

James Burt, 24, agreed to pay $1.5 million in damages plus $100,000 in court costs to the gaming giant behind the hugely popular Wii game.

The Laws are on the books and companies are going to use their lawyers to make sure they are enforced. Until and unless they are changed ask yourself, is it worth it?

When you put the need to play a video game next to say Nujood and woman under Islam it really puts things in perspective doesn’t it?

And unlike Nujood, James did this to himself.

I’d hit him with a nelson but he’s going to be paying for this literally for the rest of his life, so I’ll spare him than and suggest we don’t repeat his mistake.

A: Get a copy of Beatles Rock band in the house with the drums and mike.

When I left with the kids to pick up the game at K-Mart the party was winding down, a lot of people (not Rush fans apparently) had left early to see the patriots game and the teens were ready to go.

When I got home and the game was set up, suddenly Joey didn’t have to leave 45 min earlier, Crystal didn’t have to go to her grandmothers for fried chicken (mmmm fried chicken!) Dominic left the blowout and was on base guitar and Kevin whose cough was keeping him away from the party was well enough to come over and play till 10 p.m.

The kids final birthday party was VERY heavily attended and his coffers overflowed. He had said since Late August that this is all he wanted. We told him bluntly it was too expensive, he said what if he only got cash for his birthday and picked it up. We doubted he would get enough and told him to wait till Christmas, however the kid has always been lucky and yesterday was no exception.

I must confess it is cool on steroids.

My review of the game Punch-Out for the Nintendo Wii gamesystem is available at Amazon.com here.

I’ve actually only played the game sparingly but I’m spent MANY hours on the couch watching my son play the game while I was tapping away posts. I’ve seen more of this game than almost any other straight video game out there.
