I think considering the nature of my job – that is, working for the UK’s trade publication for video games – it would be somewhat remiss of me to appear in court in defence of an accused software pirate. Even if the sale of modded consoles (or R4DS cards, or whatever it is in this instance) were not strictly illegal at that time, it’s still morally wrong and something that I personally condemn.

Received an email today asking if I’d be willing to provide information, and possibly appear in court, in defence of a man accused of selling what I presume to be either R4 cards or modded consoles. This is my reply.
