She’s received notices from the Canadian Intellectual Property Rights Enforcement demanding she pay the $5,000 bill sent to her home. But it looks like they got the wrong girl!
McMillan says she’s the only person that can access her computer, and yes she knows how to use a computer.
So unless she is lying.. someone likely hacked into her computer to steal the game OR she’s been falsely accused of a crime she didn’t commit.
Back in the early 2000s we saw similar situations happen in the music industry. Like when a dead grandmother was sued by the Recording Industry of America for pirating MP3s. And she never even owned a computer.
Has the gaming industry learned nothing from the music industry in terms of anti-piracy?
