Robin Hood(s) captured atlast
Contributed by: SHA, at 5/08/2005 09:05:00 AM.

THEY saw themselves as Robin Hoods for the 21st century, cracking codes and releasing pirated internet software, but yesterday a City worker was jailed for 2½ years by a judge at the Old Bailey, who said that the cost of his crimes to the software industry had been staggering.
Alex Bell, 29, and three others ran the British end of DrinkorDie an international code-cracking group, the Old Bailey was told.
They were not in it for the money, but the thrill of being able to crack security codes and release free software on to the internet.
They cracked the protection on software programs, utilities and games to enable them to be copied and downloaded, defrauding the legitimate copyright owners, who had spent millions developing the products.
International companies such as Microsoft as well as small companies had fallen victim to the scam. Some programs had been stolen using insider help before they were available commercially.
The case brings to an end Britains biggest investigation into computer piracy, which costs British businesses £1 billion a year.
