Piracy is a result of hacking…there really isn't any way around it even though the original PSGroove was released w/o Backup support, it was just a couple hours later that someone used a hex editor to get the backup support back…..I figure in todays world, since pretty much every console has had some piracy (even the Commodore 64 cassette tapes), its just a side-effect of hacking. As I am sure over 50% of people on here admit to pirating something in their past (copying VHS tapes? Cassette tapes? downloading music? copying a CD or DVD? that was borrowed/rented/downloaded) and at least another 30% have done it and will lie/deny it. I used to live out in the middle of nowhere where the nearest rental store was about 30 miles away and before the days of GameFly online rental. This was back in the PS1 days. I will admit to downloading games and using the swap trick. I am sure the dev teams are not promoting piracy but it does happen…they release emulators and people download ROMs, they release backup managers and people download ISOs, its just the way it is…the dev team themselves are NOT doing anything illegal by providing these programs, its the end user that is breaking the law, the end user is the one that will have the FBI or ICE or DMCAA on their butts…..
