South Korea cracks down

Under increasing pressure South Korean officials have finally cracked down on peer to peer file sharers. In total 39 people were indicted for illegally shared files. I’m guessing there was a lot of movies, software, porn, manga, and of course lots and lots of Starcraft maps. Financial analysts estimate that billions of dollars are lost to digital theft each year. Perhaps this “token” gesture is meant to quiet international pressure. Let’s be honest, it’s a very small step, but it’s a step nonetheless. Maybe there is hope that Asian countries can get serious about piracy? Let’s just wait and see how much Starcraft II gets pirated in the spring.
