Yes, you read that right! Self confessed 'Pirates' from the website NZBsRus told Bestheda to kiss their "white ass" as well as stating "We are Pirates so deal with it." after the game Fallout 3 was leaked onto the internet.
According to the website, Bethesda sent an email stating that in "facilitating the download of unauthorized copies of our proprietary computer game, Fallout® 3" they were infringing on their copyright, and requested that they "immediately remove the above referenced webpage from [the] website" They went on to state that "Failure to comply with this request may lead to action for injunctive relief and/or a claim for damages as warranted"
The post came from one of the admin's of the website 'H8MACHINE' and could be considered a big swear from the pirates. Has a war just begun?
You can read can be read the post from 'H8MACHINE' on this link
Seems the Developers sent us an email to take this down for and i quote

You know what, you can all kiss my white ass, we do not host any files. This is like asking my phone company to get my phone cut off cause i told my friend over the phone where to get the game. We are Pirates so deal with it.
All Hail the Skulls 'n Bones

UPDATE: It seems that the website in question is currently down. Coincidence? Or has the war just begun...
ANOTHER UPDATE: The website seems to be up and running again, as moderator of the 'site H8MACHINE attempts to mock Bethesda further, with this picture which is apparently the 'pirate' himself...
