IT'S game over for an over-zealous Brisbane player who was fined $1.5m for illegally copying and uploading a pre-release version of a popular game.
James Burt, 24, received an early copy of Nintendo's Super Mario Bros Wii and made it available for download from a website, which has since been shut down.
As a result of his actions the Federal Court ordered Burt to pay Nintendo $1.5m in damages and also cover the $100,000 in court costs.

Watch for an Appeal...
What you think is important is rarely urgent
