Software pirates, beware! A UK man was sentenced to 12 months of jail time for importing and planning to resell 26,500 R4 cartridges, which allow Nintendo DS owners to play illegally downloaded games. While it is safe to say that gamers who use R4 cartridges for piracy use a few less than the aforementioned offender, gamers should take notice as it shows an increased effort to crack down on software pirates.
Planning on importing a few thousand R4 cartridges? You might want to rethink that purchase.
