China Daily (Hong Kong) - - IP SPECIAL -

Five peo­ple were re­cently sen­tenced to be­tween one and three years in prison by a lo­cal court for pi­rat­ing a pop­u­lar on­line video game. They ac­quired the source code of Leg­end of Mir 2 in late 2013 and cre­ated three games based on it. They ac­cepted play­ers’ pay­ment through on­line chan­nels. The case was in­ves­ti­gated un­der the su­per­vi­sion of the Min­istry of Pub­lic Se­cu­rity.
