Bungie Wins $6.7 Million in Damages From LaviCheats
Game developer Bungie has won a default judgment against the Indian operator of cheat reseller LaviCheats, who failed to appear in court after being sued two years ago. A federal court in Washington awarded over $6 million in copyright infringement and trademark damages related to various Destiny 2 hacks sold by LaviCheats.
Over the past several years, major videogame companies have taken cheat developers, sellers, and resellers to court in the United States.
In 2021, American videogame company Bungie upped its game with lawsuits against three major players; Elite Tech Boss, LaviCheats & VeteranCheats.
Bungie’s legal campaign is beginning to pay off. Last summer, the case against Elite Tech Boss resulted in a consent judgment where a key defendant agreed to pay $13.5 million in damages. This was followed by a $12 Million default judgment last month against Veterancheats.
