A weblog post
mentioned in a
Slashdot story apparently gives the account of a San Francisco native's
encounter with the FBI as the fed's raided his home looking for evidence in
connection with the theft of the Half-Life 2 source code (story).
According to Slashdot (since the site has been, naturally enough, Slashdotted),
the blog includes a scan of the FBI's search warrant. Thanks Captain Trips.
Would you feel guilty if you found out they arrested the wrong person and threw them in jail for 10 years? Or ruined them financially by taking all the data and equipment they need to run their business, as happened to Steve Jackson Games?
Are you suggesting that Valve should not have reported the theft? That they should have ignored the fact that a crime had been committed against them? Unbelievable.
By your logic if I kill your mother, you shouldn't report it because there is a chance the police might investigate a suspect other than me.
