Sega, Nintendo, and Electronic Arts are taking Internet portal Yahoo to court. The three companies contend that Yahoo is guilty of creating an arena for the sale of pirated game software and hardware needed to run it. The suit says such items are freely available from Yahoo's online auction site as well as from online retailers leasing space on Yahoo sites. The companies are asking the court for an injunction against the sales as well as damages of up to $100,000 per violation. "Yahoo has created a [place] for thieves to sell stolen property,'' said EA's Jeff Brown.
