Well, bummer... not to be a conspiracy theorist... or pessimistic... but don't they have the names of everyone that has purchased a product from these dealers now???

Well... time to get rid of my consoles....

They took my database and all my email records so potentional anyone that has ordered such a device from any of the sellers raided will be known by them one way or another.

The laws are stupid.

You can buy a modchip and use it for homebrew or use it for piracy.

You can buy a gun/knife/other weapon and use it for sport/hunting or you can kill people with it.

Should just stop selling weapons too while they are at it. Murders hurt more than piracy of rich companies.

Well... That sucks for Appleguru, I don't know if he owned OTBmods or what. But he sold to many many people here on the scene. Who knows, they might even investigate into those records and start tagging people who bought a lot of chips from him. Hopefully not, but they seem to be sticking it wherever they like lately... unsure.gif

Werks sorry to here about the bad fortune. Money always talks and enforcement of DMCA law is not a moral issue to clean up the town, it is all about the benjamins and pressure from the companies that have them all!
