Australian Court Slams Brakes on ‘GTA V’ Cheat Developer

Earlier this year Take-Two Interactive Software, the company behind ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ (GTA V), filed a lawsuit against modder Jeremy Taylor.

Known under the alias ‘Chr0m3 x MoDz,’ Taylor has been involved in several mods and cheats, including “African Engine.”

As in the cases against other cheaters, Taylor stood accused of copyright infringement and circumvention of technical protection measures, among other things.

Faced with the legal claim, the developer chose to control the damage. As a part-time employee of a local go-kart track, the 24-year-old has limited means. However, with a crowdfunding campaign, he raised over $1,000. Not to fight the allegations, but to find a way out without being made bankrupt.
