Microsoft"s Xbox Live online service for its Xbox 360 console lets its users download content like full games, movies, TV shows and more. But it looks like some of its users have tried to get some of that content illegally. As first reported by Eurogamer, Microsoft recently posted up a message on the official Xbox.com message boards informing Xbox Live users that some of its customers have been banned from using the service for such activity.
Eurogamer.net reports that some Xbox Live uses have posted up messages on the Xbox.com forums that claim they are innocent of the allegations made against them by Microsoft. They also confirm that they have been banned from using Xbox Live until December 31, 9999 (no, that"s not a typo). Microsoft did not go into any details on how these Xbox Live users illegally downloaded the content.
