U.S. judge blocks tools that help GTA Online players cheat

A promotion for

They're vaguely reminiscent of Half Life 2's Garry's Mod, but can be deployed as cheat-enablers in a competitive game.

A US federal judge has sided with Grand Theft Auto publisher Take-Two by issuing a preliminary injunction to prevent a Georgia resident from selling programs that can be used to cheat in Grand Theft Auto Online (GTA Online).

On Thursday, U.S District Judge Luis Stratton awarded the injunction against Georgia resident David Zipperer, who Take-Two had accused of selling two programs without the company's permission, which provided players who used them an unfair advantage in GTA Online.

The injunction basically stops Zipperer from continuing his shady business practices while the court case is still ongoing.

Tsurenko stuns defending Cincinnati champion Muguruza
Kyrgios took the opener on a tie break but lost the second 6-0 as he threw in the towel when a close line call went against him. Fourth seed Angelique Kerber also had a hard outing, having to battle back to outlast Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 4-6, 7-5, 6-4.

As per Reuters, Stanton said Take-Two was likely to show that Zipperer infringed its "Grand Theft Auto V" copyright.

It is in Rockstar Games interest to remove modification programs, which allow cheating and can affect the GTA online experience, to keep the player base content. Rockstar's attempts over the years to "combat cheating and griefing" have primarily been enforced through player bans, which it has been clear about. He added that the programs could damage the company's sales and reputation as people could be discouraged from buying its games.

In its original complaint, Take-Two said Menyoo and Absolute have resulted in it losing at least $500,000. Menyoo was free to all users, but the free version only allowed you to mod the Singleplayer of Grand Theft Auto V. If you paid Zipperer you would gain access to mod the Online experience. In addition, Take-Two expressed its intention to continue taking legal action, when necessary, to protect its property.
