Solution
Depends on many factors.
In General, you will be able to sue and win the case.
But you need to understand that it will not be for sale cheats, and for related aspects, such as "recovery of damages for lost profits", or simply a tax, because the cheats you will sell, and return to fill in and taxes to pay will not do.
Depends on how big companies will try to cross the road. Find and assign is that you will be in slavery until the end of days, especially if you have similar issues on the toaster asking, and can't come up with a couple of options.
Something is doubtful.
What kind of damages can there be? After all, the cheat gives nothing, it gives advantage over other players. Of course, other players may not like it and they will not play, and the company losing profit, BUT! If, for example, the player will be so good to play that will constantly have an edge over others, then the effect will be the same, but in this case we are not talking about the damage. Therefore you can sue only on the person who uses cheats, not selling them.
We don't sue the stores of weapons, we sue those who used the weapons.

Crack - is well suited to your text, but not a cheat. But that's about the taxes, if the profit will be such that the interest tax, the taxes will have to pay. But this is not related to Chita, and in General software, so... - elouise.Doyle48 commented on April 19th 20 at 12:31
@elouise.Doyle48, I would say that if the damage is large, then sue for violating the license agreement of the game. There is usually always written that prohibited any interference, including using third-party software.
But it does significantly hurt the developers themselves, so either for cheats to acquire so that you will begin to pay attention.
Typically, these issues are withdrawn from sale (if in area) or abusei hosting provider in the first place. - edmond commented on April 19th 20 at 12:34
@edmond, the agreement applies only to the players, not the developer of Chita. He in fact has nothing to do with it. - elouise.Doyle48 commented on April 19th 20 at 12:37
@elouise.Doyle48, he ran the game? Run. Means for. Some litsuhi take effect from the moment of install or even after purchase. - edmond commented on April 19th 20 at 12:40
@edmond, and if the other over the shoulder looking? - dominique_Dickins commented on April 19th 20 at 12:43
@dominique_Dickins, well, if you look from behind the shoulder you can write the cheat and it will work without any debugging is something you Google and get and take - edmond commented on April 19th 20 at 12:46
@edmond, he started a game, he accepted the agreement, but he does not use these cheats himself, he sells them. Yes, indirectly we can calculate that he used them (because you need to check their performance the most), but in any case, we need to prove the use of cheats to draw by agreement of the players.

If caught cheating, let them, but it's not relevant to the topic. So, for selling cheats nothing no one can ascribe. - elouise.Doyle48 commented on April 19th 20 at 12:49
@elouise.Doyle48, You probably live in a virtual world with ponies, and have never been in a domestic court, when against you is a big company.
If you give them trouble, they can estimate approximately in a month the work of a lawyer, there is a high probability to suffer not only administrative, but also criminal. - Kirstin commented on April 19th 20 at 12:52
@elouise.Doyle48,
But this is not related to Chita, and in General software

There was a man, and the article on him there. Wants you to press - will find something to complain about. That's what I said in my answer. Large companies and their lawyers are not idiots. They are important not for cheat you sue a sue.
Can and do vtihorya to hire comrade, and you just really beat, without a trial, consequences and evidence.

If, for example, the player will be so good to play that will constantly have an edge over others, then the effect will be the same

Believe me man with experience, who admin different game resources about 10-15 years, with online from 100 to 100 thousand. A cheater always has much more benefits than the good player. Cheating breaks the game balance, and for some genres so critical that it ruins the game for thousands of players.
It is clear that at the beginning of the game are working against the cheaters way - ban it, ban those who bought it cheats (and he will no longer buy). But there are options and the direct impact on cheaters. - Kirstin commented on April 19th 20 at 12:55
@Kirstin, Bud would be there, were all in court against a large company, what kind of assumptions and belittling the dignity of the opponent? You are an adult or Nassau?

You can dig up everything and always, but it is now on sale cheating. Talking about whether to prosecute for selling cheats, but not because you are someone crossed the road. - elouise.Doyle48 commented on April 19th 20 at 12:58
And finally:

www.consultant.ru/document/cons_doc_LAW_10699/a4d5...

create cheats is definitely the creation ON the computer. Thus:
1. The creation, distribution or use of computer programs or other computer information, obviously intended for unauthorized destruction, blocking, modification, copying of computer information or neutralizing the means of computer information protection, — shall be punishable by restriction of liberty for a term up to four years, or hard labor for a term up to four years, or imprisonment for the same term with a fine in the amount up to two hundred thousand rubles or the salary or other income for a period of eighteen months.


I just don't live in Russia, we have different, but not much. - Kirstin commented on April 19th 20 at 13:01
@Kirstin,
obviously intended for unauthorized destruction, blocking, modification, copying of computer information or neutralizing the means of computer information protection
you probably don't know what are the cheats and how they work. There are cheats which do not touch the game files. - elouise.Doyle48 commented on April 19th 20 at 13:04
@Kirstin, such as network sniffers. They only read the traffic, analyze it, and give it to the player. Cheat at this point and can even stand on a different machine. - elouise.Doyle48 commented on April 19th 20 at 13:07
Look, you know how to read and perceive information?

"or neutralizing the means of computer information protection"

PS I was not in court against a large company, I was on the other side, if you know what I mean. And won. But of course the lead won't. It is the internal Affairs, they publicly say rarely.

The court usually pohren what exactly does your cheat. The court requires that the examiner said "I have his authority to say that this software violates the law and is malware" - Kirstin commented on April 19th 20 at 13:10
The defendant wrote the software, which received confidential information intended for the other players, thus avoided the protection of the server equipment of the plaintiff. Also, the defendant sold its software to third parties, allowing them to abuse the confidential information, to the detriment of the customers of the plaintiff and causing financial damage, which the plaintiff estimated at 100 thousand rubles at the time xx.yy.20xx year.

Yeah, it's legal.
The law in no way prohibits selling such information.
