According to a report by Edge Online, Activision has sued a New York resident in federal court for allegedly copying and distributing Call of Duty 3 for the Xbox 360 and other unnamed games. The publisher is seeking statutory damages ranging from $30,000 to $150,000 for each of the alleged violations.
Interestingly, after looking into the matter, GamePolitics found that Activision has been rigorously litigating file-sharers lately. Six additional suits have been uncovered, some of which result in Activision garnering settlements in the $1,000 - $100,000 range from individuals who are not represented by attorneys and as part of their settlements agree not to discuss the case.
