what is even more funny, IF they used cracked/hacked/whatever versions of
the games, THEY are breaking copyright law. as stupid as it sounds, a
crack intro and/or a cracked modified version is the crackers IP and
you can not release/spread/commercially exploit it without the crackers
consent. ofcourse that whole scenario is somewhat bizarre (what cracker
would be stupid enough to try to enforce his rights and admit breaking
the law -as in cracking the software- at the same time...) but it
certainly exists.
