Submission + - Duke Nukem Developer 3DRealms shuts down 2 2

Nick Ives writes: Via ShackNews:

"A very reliable source close to Duke Nukem Forever developer 3D Realms today confirmed to Shacknews that the development studio has shut down.

The closure came about as a result of funding issues, our source explained, with the shut down said to affect both 3D Realms and the recently resurrected Apogee. Employees of both entities have already been let go."

A 3DRealms staff member has confirmed that this story is true. Duke Nukem will no longer be forever!

Submission + - Pirate Bay admins face jailtime

kauttapiste writes: "A Swedish court has convicted four men linked to the popular Pirate Bay file-sharing site of breaking Sweden's copyright law. The Stockholm district court sentenced Gottfrid Svartholm Warg, Peter Sunde, Fredrik Neij, and Carl Lundstrom to one year each in prison. They were also ordered to pay damages of 30 million kronor ($3.6 million) to a series of entertainment companies, including Warner Bros, Sony Music Entertainment, EMI and Columbia Pictures."

The defendants are expected to appeal all the way to the highest court if necessary.

He who is content with his lot probably has a lot.
