oh noes. someone stole hermes name ( who made shit to steal games )
this. It's a drug dealer calling the cops crying he got robbed for all his coke.
It's not a drug dealer, he is not making any profit from it. I can not make a good metaphor for it, but I understand his decision. He don't want his name to be assosiated with commercial stuff like that.
No, he's not making profit off of it. However, it is the same area of moral ambiguity as using someone's internet pseudonym on a device which, short of the commercial endeavor aspect, attempts to achieve a similar end (piracy). Someone is using the fake
name of a guy that designed software to play stolen games on their device to play stolen games. Whether he did it for the chase and the thrill of the conquest or whether he did it for profit, neither are exactly mother fucking theresa here. If he has his personal info attached to the name he uses to design cIOSes is irrelevant (not to mention careless and stupid imho). Just as "sony might sue an innocent person" is irrelevant. While part of me says Sony isn't stupid enough to randomly sue someone, the other part of me knows Sony's hand in the RIAA and that they do just that quite often. Again, regardless, when you play with fire..
And, just so it's understood, I have absolutely no quams with piracy. I have 222 on my system and appreciate the work both Hermes & Waninkoko do for the Wii community.
