    Late last year, three men who worked at the ACME Game Store on Melrose Boulevard in Los Angeles were charged with copyright infringement for selling illegally modded Xboxes. The consoles were outfitted with special chips and larger hard drives which allowed them to play and rip illegal copies of games. Jason Jones, the owner of the store, has been sentenced to six months of home detention, reports KCAL 9 News. On top of the six months of home detention, which includes wearing an electronic ankle bracelet to track his location, Jones will serve three years of probation. A second man, Jonathon Bryant, will serve only the three years probation after Jones admitted he was the sole owner of the store. A third man, Pei Cai, remains at large and is considered a fugitive. Jones and Bryant were also ordered to pay more than $2,600 to the Entertainment Software Association (ESA).

    Do you believe that when some cops are nicking drunks there aren't any looking for murderers?
