Ivanopulo vs. Macromedia


Long time no see?
Anyway, if you are here, you must be bored. Check out this link . For those of you who do not know about Ivanopulo, he is a Russian programmer who is infamous for cracking the protection schemes of Macromedia products. The link details Ivanopulo's correspondence with Steve Wozniak, the head of Macromedia's anti-piracy dept, from Ivanopulo's point of view. It's hilarious.

The conversation happened a whole 8 years ago but that does not take away from the basic comedy of Ivanopulo trying to explain himself. It is not only funny ,but also a relevant example of how international copyright laws may (or may not :)) affect us.
