Judge Shuts Down Grand Theft Auto Online Cheats

The court case was resolved on Thursday 16th August 2018. It accused David Zipperer of selling the Menyoo and Absolute programs that help GTA V players cheat by giving them extra benefits and allowing the adjustment of other players' gameplay.

As a result of this injunction, Zipperer will no longer be able to sell this kind of software.

David Zipperer, from Georgia, was accused by Take-Two and Rockstar Games of selling Modding software for Grand Theft Auto Online.

Basically, this block is granted to prevent the modifications which Take-Two claims are damaging its reputation and could prevent sales of the game. These programs allegedly cost the company $500,000 in revenue.


At the same time, Stanton dismissed an unfair competition claim against Zipperer, adding that an injunction was a fair outcome that serves the public interest - partly because it will encourage Take-Two to invest more in games, and also because Zipperer can't afford to pay any damages. Take-Two is prepared to flex it's legal muscle in order to protect the integrity of the franchise. Take-Two has stated that it will continue to pursue legal action against any disruptions and threats to its multiplayer communities.

It should come as no surprise that Grand Theft Auto V - and its online component GTA Online - remains incredibly popular and successful for its publisher Take-Two Interactive. Modding is a large part of Grand Theft Auto on PC, however online modding has become a bit of a problem recently.

The tools in question are two trainer mods called Menyoo and Absolute, which allow users to alter various things in-game such as spawning weapons and cars. Unlike David Zipperer, MoDz is facing paying damages if he loses.
