The Interactive Digital Software Association (IDSA) announced 
Wednesday that 13 computer and video game companies have gone to 
court to shut down six Web sites that they say are selling pirated 
versions of their software.  

The complainants joined in filing separate suits in federal court in 
the Northern District of California against six individuals who the 
companies allege are running the pirate sites.  

Among the companies bringing the suits are Activision, Inc., 
Electronic Arts Inc., Hasbro Interactive, Inc., Nintendo of America 
Inc., and Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc.
