Destiny 2 Cheat Distributor Agrees To Pay Bungie $13.5 Million
In a move that will put an end to a copyright infringement case, a company that creates cheat codes for Destiny 2 has agreed to pay Bungie $13.5 million in damages.
In addition, the business has consented to a permanent injunction prohibiting the development of new cheating tools for Destiny 2 or any other Bungie game.
Bungie accused Canadian cheating company Elite Boss Tech of breaking Destiny 2's user agreement with its software, as well as costing the developer
exorbitant amounts of money" in building anti-cheat technologies, according to court filings and a report by TorrentFreak.
Bungie also stated that Elite Boss Tech's software disrupted player experiences and harmed Destiny 2's reputation, posing a commercial risk to the game.
Despite the fact that Elite Boss Tech claims it never duplicated Destiny 2 code and that some of Bungie's accusations are based on unenforceable
assertions from its Limited Software License Agreement, the cheating company has agreed to pay $13.5 million in damages and never create Destiny 2 cheats again.
The $13.5 million was estimated based on the 6,765 times Elite Boss Tech's cheating software was downloaded, each with a $2,000 penalty.
