Got away easy. Slap on the wrist was basically it.

I'm still not happy that a game company could take someone to court over cheating.

Well thats not why. He was broadcasting on youtube to the world on how to cheat. Destroys a games reputation when backdoors/hacks etc are found. Even more so when someone promotes the flaws.

Is the reputation being destroyed by a kid making videos or them being poor at preventing cheating?

It's a monstrously inefficient way at tacking cheating. Just like piracy court cases, pure scaremongering, when in reality you tackle cheating and piracy by upping your game and making piracy/cheating less appealing. See: Spotify, Netflix, Overwatch

I agree, its incredibly inefficient and a waste of resources. However when you consider the principle, they have a right to do so.
