Does the following mean that the SPA will go after all the hacker sites
you find thru Alta Vista search? Or should there be some ACA (anti cracker
association) to go stop hacker sites? Would the posting of exploit code to
bugtraq be considered liable for indirect infringement or is this only
for hacker tools in regard to software piracy?
Piracy has taken many forms on the Internet. These include making
unauthorized copies of software available for download, the posting of
serial numbers, cracker and hacker utilities and links to pirate FTP
sites. Although many believe piracy is limited to "warez" or illegal
copies of software, it extends beyond that narrow definition. Under
the law, anyone who knows -- or should have known -- of the
infringement and who assists, encourages or induces the infringement
is liable for indirect infringement. In each of the actions SPA filed,
at least two of the above infringements were present.
