I N T R O D U C T I O N - - - - - - - - - - - - THE SUBJECT OF SOFTWARE PIRACY HAS BEEN AN OPEN TOPIC OF DISCUSSION ON THE BOARD FOR SOME PERIOD OF TIME. IN THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER A PERSON CAME ON OUR BOARD WHO CALLED HIMSELF ROBBING HOOD, WHO SAID HE LIVED AT RISLEY HALL AT CORNELL, WAS A SOPHOMORE AND ALSO HIS REAL NAME WAS FRED WILLIAMS. IN EARLY DECEMBER I FOUND OUT THAT HE WAS REALLY SOMEONE FROM THE COMPANY CALLED SIRTECH WHICH PRODUCES A GAME CALLED CALLED WIZARDRY. SOMETIME IN JANUARY HE FOUND OUT THAT WE KNEW WHO HE WAS AND AFTER SOME DISCUSSION DECIDED TO 'COME CLEAN'. I TOLD HIM THAT HE COULD TELL HIS STORY AND THAT WE WOULD HAVE AN OPEN DISCUSSION OF THE SUBJECT. COMMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE BY MANY USERS, AUTHORS, ATTORNEYS, PIRATES AND CRACKERS. THE ONGOING DIALOGUE IS GIVEN IN THE FOLLOWING VOLUMES OF THE SUBJECT. MAKE UP YOUR OWN MIND NOTE: THE FOLLOWING FILES ARE AS LONG AS 100 SECTORS EACH. PLEASE USE A DATA CAPTURE TO SAVE THESE FILES.
