I’ve never ran another PC Game security besides Safe Disk and SecureROM in Amercia. While I hear of Tages,StarForc ect. securites accross the world. This is interesting most likely since one of Sony’s SecureROM departments is in America and Macrovision is based in California. Macrovision is desperate for a better PC Game Security,and Sony knows SecureROM new has been beaten. I wouldn’t be surprised if they read these fourms and other one’s to find out what we are doing right so they can’t counter that and improve there security. Small third party software companies see this a way to make programs to make a copyable CD/DVD for the End User to make a legit single back up copy if they are the copyrighted owner. Software companies see this as a profit to gain for them since disc media security has been so infourmative throughout the internet today like fourms and websites like these. In America around the year I believe in 1994 there was a law that if you are the legal copyrighted own of a disc you are allowed to make one back up copy. I feel this law will eventually be broken and a single back up copy in America will no loner be legal. Just look how early versions of Clone CD has Amplify Weak Sectors/Hide CD-r Media isn’t supposed to be used in America and Japan cause its illegal. Its like a war on drugs its never gonna end I believe,to stop piracy for good. I myself believe software companies should get there deserved profit. Its interesting how people won’t and believe stealing from a store is wrong but yet pirate copyrighted media;they believe its not as bad because they think only a few people do it. One person says “only a few do it” then everybody thinks that and it goes into large numbers and big time money gets lost to the companies who made the product. Mainly using a product without paying for it is biting the hand that feeds you. People pirate for many different reasons: 1) They wanna gain a profit. 2) They believe products are overpriced. 3) They think its cool to break a law. 4) They do it for friends and/or family. 5)They dislike they company and/or company. 6)They believe things should be free.
When it all comes down to it piracy of intlectual property hurts the economy,and put people and software companies out of jobs and business. Picture you working hard for your paycheck at your job and then seeing a large quanity of money on the paystub deducted by welfare knowing some people on welfare don’t deserve to be on it. That is how movies/audio/software companies feel when there interlectual property is pirated. I know some people go to these fourms for reasons I won’t say here. All I’m asking is think of what your doing,think of what I said. Sincerely GameOwl
