Gaming company 'Epic' takes a New Zealand man to court for finding a way to acquire in-game premium currency for free in the game Battle Royale, then sharing the how-to video on YouTube.

Seems a bit over the top to me - as mentioned in a comment it was a flaw in their own software. Hacker or not, taking this man to court is ridiculous.

If you find a way to get your groceries past the checkout without paying for them, is the supermarket at fault?

Hell yes.

It's not my fault I filled my underpants with ham and they didn't ask for any money for it.

I haven't heard about anything with some kids. Were kids on the drunk monk pork sword or doing game loot exploits?

Anyway if someone finds a way to knowingly take a product without paying and then makes the security flaw public, they shouldn't be surprised to be hearing from lawyers... i mean really now.
