The Geek Squad is Goin DOWN!!
« on: 2006-04-22 05:17:22 »
Just thought you guys might like this..

Winternals Files Federal Copyright Infringement Lawsuit Against Best Buy Company and Geek Squad

http://www.winternals.com/Company/PressRelease77.aspx

http://www.winternals.com/legal/Plaintiff's%20Original%20Complaint.pdf

Long document check out around page 9..

I really hope best buy gets the crap kicked out of them with this lawsuit.. The manager of our local best buy is a total ass and I hate him.. I never worked for him.. Just heard things about him.. But that's not what formed my opinion.. When I was hiring everyone loved me.. and the guy was a total d*ck.. He basically shut me down after i passed everything with flying colors and I have no clue why. Maybe my long hair..

Either way .. Everyone hates the guy.. Even God does.. I know because I asked him.. Satan doesnt care for him much either.. and same with Zeus..

I really think though that it's pretty crappy for a company as big as best buy to be pirating software for profit..

I mean.. I pirate.. I pirate TONS of stuff.. But I don't make a dime off of it.

Yeah.. Pirating is wrong I think.. But I also think that pirating for profit is much worse than just me using it for my own benefit.

I'd say probably 80% of people that own computers have pirated atleast one piece of software in their lives. Hell, maybe its even higher than that..

Anyway.. Thought you all might get a kick out of this..

I think everyone loves when a big corporation takes a hit in the judicial system ^^

I remember reading somewhere that 1 in every 3 copies of Windows XP is pirated. (I think it was in USA Today last week)  If they are just basing this figure on downloads alone I guess the numbers could be even greater.

Well this is a little different then a single warez-o-phile cracking some downloaded program. How could Best Buy be so stupid? ...and sloppy? :o
Best Buy must go Down!
(Ironic little parallel: Best Buy is 'Hell' and the Geek Squad are their little 'minions'. Ok that's just pure fantasy. :P)

Good call on the info Caddberry!
