    Federal agents seized computers in 27 U.S. cities Tuesday morning to gain evidence against hackers in an international software piracy ring. Police in five countries also served warrants against people accused of stealing software, U.S. Customs Service officials said.

    Game Pirates Rule the Seize. Ironically, one of the main reasons crackers are so zealous in their pursuit of video games is that they want to play games that are free of anti-piracy security measures. By Brad King.
    Warcraft III, the much-anticipated sequel from Blizzard Entertainment, hits store shelves on July 3. The series, which is the company's most recognizable franchise, hoped its rollout would create a big splash in an industry that thrives on glitz and glamour. That wasn't to be. While designers rushed to complete the game, groups of crackers around the world were trying to get their hands on Warcraft III before it was released. It's a regular dance between game companies and pirate groups. The bigger the game, the more intense the pressure on both sides. In this battle, the game companies almost never win.

    In the early hours of July 6, Jenny, head of a software piracy ring based in the Pacific Northwest, paced impatiently in front of a rack of high-speed personal computers, waiting for the phone call that would make her a superstar in the pirate underground. It would come from an employee of LucasArts Entertainment Co. in San Rafael,who for $300 would supply Jenny's pirate group with one of the most anticipated games of the summer: "TIE Fighter," based on the "Star Wars" movie trilogy and priced at about $60 per copy. At LucasArts, the employee attached a small cellular modem to the back of his PC - a technique that would keep any record of the call off the company telephone bill - and dialed. Within a few minutes, the program had arrived in Jenny's computer, lacking only the code keys that would make it possible to play the game without an owner's manual.

    Were DrinkOrDie Raids Overkill? Crackers are shaking their heads over Tuesday's raids by U.S. and foreign authorities designed to shut down the well-known piracy organization. Seems to them like a bit much for a group that hasn't done much cracking lately. By Farhad Manjoo.
    To hear the federal government and piracy experts describe it, DrinkOrDie, the network of software crackers that was the focus of worldwide anti-piracy law enforcement action on Tuesday, is the al-Qaida of Internet software theft. The U.S. Customs Service called the group "the oldest and most well known" of Internet piracy organizations, describing it as a loose affiliation of computer experts who operate as sleepers in our midst, ready to drop their cover and crack the latest copy of Photoshop at any instant.

In the mid-1990s, ACiD created subsidiary groups responsible for these broader areas. For example, Remorse is the official ACiD sub-label responsible for ASCII art and other text-based graphics. Similarly, pHluid is responsible for module tracking and music production. Today, ACiD focuses largely on the preservation of digital art history, talk radio news, and sale of their DVD-based artscene archives.

    Superior Art Creations, often referred to as SAC, is an underground artscene group which caters primarily to and is well known within the warez scene. During the mid to late nineties most of the notable ANSI artscene groups had distanced themselves from the warez scene, rather creating art for the sake of art, or for bulletin boards that were purely artscene related. Seizing this opportunity, SAC moved into this vacant territory and quickly became recognized as the leading group of warez scene artists. Towards the late 1990s, a good majority of NFO file ASCII art was created by various members of SAC. In 1999, lead ASCII artist Ferrex ascended into the role of senior staff and leader, continuing to control the group to this day.

    Enter the "iso scene": One day, Pirate1 figured out that he could transfer his iso image of GameX to Pirate2 over the internet where Pirate2 could then burn the image and essentially have an exact duplicate of the original! Imagine the possibilities... to share one massive CD collection with all of the greater pirate community. PC games, utils, and console games can all be traded the same way. Expand your PSX or Saturn collection for the mere cost of a blank CD ($2). Download company patches and version upgrades without worrying about compatibility with your rip. Get the latest programming/graphics utils with full online docs and examples (finally!) instead of seeing them ripped out. Build a massive CD library and be the envy of all the other kids on your street!

While Marvel has since become a professional artist in the video-game industry working on titles such as Max Payne, Killzone and Medal of Honor.

    In the years 1987-1989 there was just one big cracker zine in Europe. (With the term 'cracker' we hereby mean a person who removes protection from software.) Alongside the dutch magazine Hacktic this was probably the crown media of the European computer underground, comparable to TAP and 2600 in the United States. Word has it that Illegal was the main inspiration source for all underground diskzines later produced on C= 64, Amiga, Atari ST and IBM PC. Illegal was not the first cracker fanzine, and certainly not the last, but beyond reasonable doubt it was the biggest and most influential "Warez"-producer magazine in the world history of cracking.

Specifically: Oldskool is my flavor of "Old school", a term commonly given to something that, while old, was (and still is) innovative, fresh, proper, clever, and generally correct and the right way to do things. The old school begets the new school (anything new and modern), for you certainly can't get to anything new without going through the old. For example: Robotron is the old school, while Quake III is the new school; Sister Sledge is the old school, while En Vogue is the new school; and so on. Old school is, ultimately, a term of respect.

If a company no longer sells a game, should I be able to download a copy of it? Not too long ago, most people would never have given any of these questions a thought. But as computer use has spread, and with it the use of software, these questions have gained in currency.
