I don't know of any reliable way to get into contact with them -- they don't seem too responsive to emails about activation concerns, so I doubt they'd respond to emails about copyright concerns either. Besides, since it's a prize that's already been awarded to someone, what can they do now, ask for the money back? If you have a reliable way of contacting them I'll consider it, though.
Earlier you specifically said you did nothing because "you didn't want to get the previous winners in trouble". Now you say you might consider it, but you can't reliably contact them. That's just lame.
Assuming the cheque has been cut and cashed, then no, YYGs can't get the money back. At least not cost effectively. However, they can ensure that the previous violators don't benefit again. They can also use the violation as an example, to reduce future abuses. Maybe even impliment better checks and balances.
You're the guy who made the accusation, first against YoYoGames for having rules and not enforcing them, even though you have not shown any evidence that they knew about your alleged copyright violation. Now you're in a position of doing something about it, but you won't.
Now you're making allegations that past contest winners cheated. Not naming them casts doubt on all past winners.
It's more important that you be a nice guy, who cares that you've just put all past contest winners into the same dark shadow.
