Those little "nintendo in a controller" sets you see at flea markets? Yeah, they're illegal - and a Florida man just got a pretty stiff fine for selling them.

Kifah Maswadi, age 24, of Oakland, Florida, was sentenced Friday in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. He pleaded guilty on June 3 to one count of criminal copyright infringement after he was indicted Jan. 24, the DOJ said.

Maswadi sold Power Player handheld game consoles that contained pirated copies of at least 76 video games, most of them games by Nintendo and its licensees, the agency said.
