Epic don't play. Well, not when it comes to modders with such impudence to advertise early copies of Gears of War 2 on Craigslist.
Roger Altmeyer and his "St. Louis Mod Shop" has been rendered defunct by a court order and Mr. Altmeyer in turn, settled with an unconditional surrender to Epic Games.
Mr. Altmeyer's audacity did not end just with him hocking Gears. He even advertised modded Xboxes and other illegal copies of games online. He is now permanently out of business. Forced to turn over all his dead stock, as well as any parts "capable of circumventing copyright restrictions," this guilty defendant also has to assist Epic in identifying others who violate copyright restrictions.
This due process swooped down on Mr. Altmeyer at warp speed. Epic caught the ads and sued him on October 31, 2008.
