IIT Student Sued

According to this story on Slashdot, the maintainers of ninjahacker.net are currently being sued by Tecmo under the DMCA. This is pretty ridiculous, in my opinion, but I am anxious to hear how it turns out. Game hacking has been an interesting (sub)culture, and has provided us with awesome games, not the least of which is Counter-Strike. Obviously, there is probably more to the supposed DMCA “violations,” but I daresay it’s a misuse of the law nonetheless. Maybe the EFF should take a look? Oh, and by the way… the guy that runs (or ran, since it’s now offline) the site lives in State Street Village and attends IIT. Cool!
