I'd forgotten about Kevin Mitnick (sorry Kev!), but he was in a league all by himself.
And while the source code theft got a lot of publicity during a time when there really was nothing else going on, I doubt seriously that anyone outside of the gaming industry even remembers it, or cared about it in the first place, so the odds of some judge actually remembering it are probably pretty low.Odds are he'll end up bankrupt with at least a year of jailtime
Well, everyone seems to think it was just a bored teen somewhere, so bankruptcy won't bother him too much, since you can't pluck a bald chicken. And the year of jailtime I doubt seriously as well. Maybe a couple of years of probation, or three months in a minimum security resort or something. Valve will have to struggle in court just to show that they actually suffered damages from this (seriously, when the game comes out, everyone will STILL buy it, so at most they lost 6 months of salaries or so? Not counting the supposed Havok lawsuit, ofcourse)I'm all for massive jailtime for hacking
That I will readily agree too, and I didn't want to appear as if I was against it. Any hacker, or even worse, fuckturd who writes a virus for fun, put him behind bars for 50 years with Bubba.
