Ban Worthy Offense: Theft Of Intellectual Property

Back in 2012 at the Penny Arcade Expo in Boston, Justin D. May was arrested and detained for trying to steal a copy of the game Breach. May said that he was just trying to get on the internet by using an Ethernet cable at the Atomic Games booth but the company said that when they checked his laptop, there was about 14 megabytes of the game on it. Ironically, May attended an earlier panel given by Xbox and asked a panelist how he could get unbanned from Live. When asked why he was banned in the first place, he admitted to obtaining an illegal copy of Forza 3 and trying to play it online. Given the later circumstances, you can bet that Xbox banned everything other gamertag that remotely looked like May's.
