    X Box game hackers are sued !

    "In the first case of its kind, a California video game maker is suing an entire community of software tinkerers for reverse engineering and modifying Xbox games that they legally purchased. Tecmo, Inc., a subsidiary of a Japanese company, announced a federal lawsuit Wednesday against Mike Greiling of Eden Prairie, Minn., and Will Glynn from Davie, Fla, for alleged violations of US copyright law and the controversial Digital Millennium Copyright Act."

    If they are victorious, this could be a sad day for the world of tweakers and tinkerers...

    The best way to defeat this would be to not buy any more techmo games... let die a miserable death... then end. Users have spoken.
