You’re Stealing it Wrong: 30 Years of Inter-Pirate Battles
Defcon – September 2010
Historian Jason Scott walks through the many-years story of software piracy and touches on the tired debates before going into a completely different direction – the interesting, informative, hilarious and occasionally obscene world of inter-pirate-group battles. A multi-media extravaganza of threats, CSI-level accusations and evidence trails, decades of insider lingo, and demonstrations of how the more things change, the more they still have to keep their ratios up.
Jason Scott is a computer historian and plot-writer for computer games, employed by THQ/Volition, whose credits include the 1999 FreeSpace 2.
