Okay, on KaZaA, there is a pirated copy of Uplink. My developing company downloaded in hopes of tracing it "master." The guys name is Slaxor. I want to bring him or her to justice for breaking international treaties, because with people like this, my company has been forced to program our games on laptops without connections to the web. If anyone can help me find this Slaxor person, notify me or Introversion, since it is their software that has been pirated, with the information anyone can find about this person.

Alright, here's the info I dug up
Found the game being hosted by Ars0n!c@kazaa
This is on July 06, 3:23 AM
His IP address is  ACA97FCA.ipt.aol.com
It seems he was sharing the entire uplink CD.  Here are the uplink files I found hosted by him:
developer16-11-2000.bmp
developer19-6-2000.bmp
diaryhack
gamebible
promo
uplink the game (for win).exe (presumably an install file)
Don't have to download any of his files, it's obvious to me he's sharing the full version.

Unfortunately, what Ph33ker says is true...

Kazaa is not under the jurisdiction of any country, so therefore they can do what they like. Sad but true...

The original publishers are under the jurisdiction of whoever hosts the distribution site, 'tho -- isn't that why they moved already?

Actually, this whole "Uplink got pirated" crap got started in iSONEWs. One guy posted the demo on the boards, people were begging to get it pirated, then guess what? Slaxor bought it, and gave it out into the pirate scene.

Slaxor is indeed the one who gave it out.

There are other ripped versions out there....Uplink is fairly ez to warez. Copy it to your HD. Scan your black card. Put everything in one folder. Zip it. And upload to a shell...It will only take 10 min. Make a little ghetto HTML page like I did. Load a counter on there. And then email the link to a warez site. Sit your ass done a week later and watch the hits come.

I would not say a waste of money. It is not that much money. The replayablity is not that high. But hell...look there is a new patch!...MUAHAHA More fun with the game now!

Haha, the Arsonic guy is an AOL user, not a thing you can do to him (dynamic IP).

There's no guarentee that this arsonic guy is even the one, he probobly downloaded it from someone else, he shouldn't be blamed for something he has.  Also, Slaxor is someone who releases the warez versions, they can't be tracked down, seeing as they ahve no websites or e-mails that anyone knows about.  Razor1911, The Myth Team and everyone else are all independant groups who don't like publicity.
