Piracy

A year ago, the UK Intellectual Property Office (IPO) conducted a study, which concluded that criminal sanctions for copyright violation should be amended and brought into line with such offenses as counterfeiting. The results of the study also triggered a proposal from the British government that the maximum prison sentence for online piracy should be increased from the current 2 years to 10 years to be a sufficient deterrent. Several months ago, the UK government started a consultation in o

E107

We all were witnesses of a great panic and a lot of accusations of how weak and non-safe is e107 recently. The reason was a massive attack against most of the e107 based (community and non-community) sites and e107.org itself. Let's summarize the facts first. It's true that a number of security holes was recently reported, and some of them were bad - really bad. I'll write in a separate post the sad story behind some of the reports, which caused SO MUCH damage to a lot of e107 based sites a

COD 6

Well there is total uproar in the pc gaming community, Infinity Ward have announced that they will not be releasing the source code for MW2. So what does this mean? Possible the first move to pay to play Internet gaming, why? There is no way that independent game server providers can host servers for paying clients meaning that Activision have the monopoly for internet play. The opportunity for individuals to rent a game server, improve the game by the application of add ons and then allow peopl
