If this story is true, then DirectTV is a bunch of money loving cock gobblers.
In recent months the satellite TV giant has filed nearly 9,000 federal lawsuits against people who’ve purchased signal piracy devices. But some of those devices have legitimate uses, and innocent computer geeks are getting caught in the crackdown, writes
I’m all for them nailing people who steal their programming. But these “signal piracy devices” are Smart Card Readers. That’s right, the same thing you and I and any smart card programmer would have to read and write/program smart cards. This is fucking out of hand.
If I was a DirectTV cusotmer, I’d drop their ass in a heart beat this very evening. Next thing you know, these RIAA asswipes will be suing you and me for purchasing a CD-R and having a copy of CDEX on our computers.
