Sheriff zaps computer game pirate.

Police swooped on a Highland farmhouse - and found a mini factory for pirating computer games.

Tom McMillan, known to computer buffs as The Farmer, had a catalogue available itemising 3000 games he had for sale.

He also advertised in a weekly games mag, Inverness Sheriff Court heard.

The swoop came after a tip-off to trading standards.

McMillan, 50, of Auldearn, Nairnshire, was ordered to do 240 hours community service after admitting copyright offences.

Sheriff Ian Cameron told him he'd have gone to jail if he hadn't been a first offender.
