ROBLOX protects gaming platform by adopting brand protection strategyNetNames, the online brand protection specialist, has partnered with ROBLOX Corporation, the user-generated online gaming platform, to deliver a brand protection programme to proactively protect ROBLOX products from the threat of counterfeiting on a global scale. ROBLOX ROBLOX has entered a contract with NetNames, which will see NetNames detect fraudulent websites imitating that of the brand and counterfeit listings of ROBLOX products on marketplace sites, whilst enforcing their removal from the internet.

As part of the brand protection programme, NetNames will also monitor for infringements on ROBLOX’s games across social media sites and mobile apps. With over 15 million games created by its users, ROBLOX is the largest gaming site in the world. Powered by a growing community of over 300,000 developers who create a variety of 3D games, it allows users to experience virtual and augmented reality through applications available across iOS, Android and Kindle Fire devices. Having developed its own virtual currency, Robux, the online gaming platform represents a digital economy which offers aspiring game developers the opportunity to monetise their creations.

The partnership will not only safeguard against infringements on the brand’s trademark, which could be damaging to ROBLOX’s reputation, it will also protect the profits of its community of developers.

His accomplice was sentenced to 6 months and was released for time served.
Pirate Bay co-founder Gottfrid Svartholm Warg faces up to six years in jail after being convicted of hacking computers in Denmark. A Danish court found Warg and his co-defendant guilty of breaking into computers owned by technology services firm CSC and downloading police and social security files from government servers. The court heard that Warg and his accomplice, who was granted anonymity by the court, hacked into servers CSC was hosting. Investigators found the initial intrusion took place in February 2012, giving the hackers access to sensitive information for about six months. Once inside the computer network, the pair accessed police email accounts, the European border control database and downloaded millions of social security numbers belonging to Danish citizens. Warg is to be sentenced on 31 October 2014, but his co-defendant was released after conviction because he had already served 17 months in pre-trial detention. Defence lawyers claimed Warg’s computer was hijacked by unnamed hacker, but the court found it was "unlikely" other people were responsible, reports the BBC. The court ruled that the CSC servers had been hacked in a "systematic and organised” way, according to Danish reports. “The court has taken into account that the accused Warg did not want to reveal any more details about the identity of the persons indicated by him as having the ability to remotely control his computers, nor explain how the remote control could have taken place,” the judge said. The conviction is Warg’s third in the past five years. In 2009, he was convicted of copyright breach along with the three other co-founders of the Pirate Bay file-sharing site – Fredrik Neij, Peter Sunde and Carl Lundstroemj. However, Warg went on the run in an attempt to avoid going to jail. Although Neij, Sunde and Lundstroem had to pay almost $7m in damages to content owners, their one-year jail terms were reduced to between four and 10 months after an appeal in 2010. In September 2013, Warg was deported from Cambodia to Sweden to serve his sentence of a year in jail after being arrested under an international warrant.  In a separate case in 2013, Warg was sentenced to two years in a Swedish jail for hacking into a bank's computers through IT services firm Logica, but the sentence was reduced to one year on appeal. In November 2013, he was deported from Sweden to Denmark to face charges in the latest CSC hacking case. The Pirate Bay was launched in 2003 to provide links to music and film files stored on users' computers. Its founders defended their website by claiming that no copyrighted material was stored on its servers and no exchange of files actually takes place there. In February 2012, the UK High Court ruled that the site illegally encourages users to infringe music copyright and ordered major UK broadband providers to block access to the site in a case brought by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI). According to the BPI, illegal copies of films, books and music made available on file-sharing sites destroy creative industry jobs and discourage investment in new talent.
