Still, 5 years in prison must suck. Hope that dude made enough money to pay the fine and still be comfortable - won't be too easy getting a job when he's released.

Said he made a few thousand a month from advertising. He should have moved the servers to russia since l2 is made by south koreans.

lol the story seems a bit exaggerated lol

“They don’t think that a company is going to come after them at any point,” says Christopher Thompson, a special agent on a cyber squad in the FBI’s office in Austin, Texas. “He said he was going to stop doing it and he didn’t.”
Wtf? Everytime I start a server that's the first thought that's in my mind lol
When will it be time to move on before I get pwned and sent to jail for 5 years lol

In 2003, a computer user in China obtained the “Lineage” source code from an unprotected website. The proprietary code was then placed on the underground market, where a Texas man, among others, bought it in 2004. He then passed it along to his business partner in California, who set up a website, , to offer the “Lineage” game at a discount. Gamers arrived in droves—as many as 50,000 active users by 2006—which pinched the legitimate game’s bottom line.
Pfft, how long does it take a source to get leaked once it's hacked from the originator? Maybe, a month lol
These guys talk like it's a well kept secret and you have to purchase it on some black market lol

Last November, Agent Thompson led a raid on the California man’s home, shut down the game, seized the l2extreme domain, and posted the FBI anti-piracy warning on the site.
The connotation of raid is bad lol
It's more like they came over to his house in a white ford taurus, knocked on his door,
"Hi there, are you the owner of l2extreme..."
"You are? O well we're here to pwn you and send yah to jail..."
"Detective McDonald, please cuff 'em so we can go get some dam donuts..."
Then they drove off with 'em in the back lol

The result: several other servers running pirated games “ran for the hills,” Agent Thompson said. There are others, to be sure, but the case serves as a reminder that stealing intellectual property is a criminal offense. As our warning clearly states, “ Criminal copyright infringement, including infringement without monetary gain, is investigated by the FBI and is punishable by up to 5 years in federal prison and a fine of $250,000."
They're watching us lol
How else would they know most people think you're in the clear as long as you don't make money? Plus they know lots of the other admins ran for it lol


There that's my thoughts ^_^
