software "piracy" has been around for ever. I remember copying punch cards. It took forever and if you made one mistake hours of work was down the tubes. I had an apple II that we used "Disk Pirate" 1-11 to copy games, peach tree accounting software, etc. In the time it took to load the 5 1/4" floppy you could make a copy. From that you could make as many copies as you deemed fit. I must of made $100 from Dig Dug alone. Then came cad or ? with a software "lock" it was a piece of hardware that connected to a serial port on your computer. Without the lock the software was dead. You were free to use the software on any computer but you had to have the lock. More computers simply buy more locks. It has been so long I forget the details but it was effective. If you tried to reverse engineer the "lock" you rendered it dead. No one wanted to buy the locks so it went with the dodo... In this day and age piracy is simply a game that is quite profitable. We used to copy and share over bbs' or even mail each other copies. Shareware was the cats ass. Now I have to buy a new OS every frickin year. New version of Office, Photoshop, etc. Frick that! I love Win 98SE, it still serves my purpose. I love win 2k pro, it serves my purpose. Vista, Win 7, MAc OSes... Crap, pure crap. Photoshop 5 does all I need. Office 97 works great and has a nifty flight sim in it. Win 7 is still frickin Dos... I still have my copies of Dos versions 3- 6.2 and it serves its purpose. Do I use dvd decrypter? Yes. Dvd shrink? Hell yes. Do I sell the copies or profit from it? Whenever I can. Boldly doing it over the internet is just stupid and anyone who does it deserves the full penalty.
