A reseller of Nintendo Switch hacking devices has agreed to pay the platform holder $2 million in damages.
In May 2020, Nintendo launched a lawsuit against Tom Dilts Jr., the Ohio-based operator of the website Uberchips, which it claimed was selling unathorised operating systems which enable users to play pirated games on all Switch models.
Until Nintendo filed the lawsuit, Uberchips was alleged to be selling products from an anonymous group of hackers called Team-Xecuter.
Dilts subsequently took Uberchips offline and has now agreed to pay Nintendo $2 million in damages, according to a joint court filing submitted by the two parties.
It has yet to be signed off by a judge but given it’s been agreed by both parties, that should be a formality, TorrentFreak reports.
A permanent injunction will prohibit Dilts from selling Team-Xecuter chips or similar circumvention devices and infringing Nintendo’s copyrights in any other way.
Dilts has also agreed to retire any Uberchips social media accounts and relinquish the Uberchips.com domain name to Nintendo.
A separate Nintendo lawsuit thought to be targeting eight foreign resellers of Team-Xecuter hacking devices is ongoing.
