I love it when multinational companies get upset at you if you have more than 4 neurons working at any given time….
SunnComm won’t sue over Shift key
Nope, I didn’t lie. Neither did CNet or Wired. SunnComm, who berated a university student who found a single key depression work around to an apparently not so complex copy protection scheme, has backed down. The protection scheme is one that the creators for some reason confusingly said 90% of people would never try to workaround(then why have it, huh?) and which it claimed three major labels would adopt very soon, was broken by a simply shift key, which I explained disables the copy protection. The company announced today, after apparently taking a lot of heat over slamming this student for his publishing the flaw, trying to claim he had an agenda to ruin the company or something. This, we can hope, is the end of this joke.
