Alleged to have sold over 90,000 copied games

The Korean Customs Service has identified a ring of 25 software pirates, and passed on their details to prosecutors.

The Korea Herald reported that the suspects have sold over 90,000 illegally copied games in the form of Nintendo DS titles, as well as R4, DS TT devices.

15 of the 25 operated online, and the suspects earned around $35 to $87 per item.

"Considering that most of the game users are adolescents and children, such illegal purchases will make the kids less guilty in terms of illegal acts," said customs official Min Byeong-jo.
