GTA V publisher Rockstar Games' has won a summary judgment against two men who were connected to the now-defunct 'mod menu' cheat Epsilon. The UK Intellectual Property and Enterprise Court found the pair guilty of copyright infringement by creating and selling the software.

At the Intellectual Property and Enterprise Court, Rockstar and its parent company Take-Two Interactive filed a complaint against several people connected to the now-defunct “Epsilon” cheat.

Epsilon was a so-called ‘mod menu’ which offered players significant advantages. The game companies reportedly shut down the cheat in 2018 and identified five men connected to it. They were accused of copyright infringement by creating and distributing the software.

Since the complaint was filed, three defendants settled their case through consent orders. The remaining two went to court recently, where they hoped to be found not guilty.
