Anti-piracy organization shows you how…almost

piratesThe Entertainment and Leisure Software Publishers Association (ELSPA) has long been in the struggle in bringing software pirates to justice in the UK and to circumvent the practice of illegally modding and chipping game consoles.

So it was rather amusing to see on their website, a display that showed almost every conceivable mod and chip device known to humanity.

Of course it is understood that their intentions were to educate software publishers and the general populace about these illegal products, but the irony of the situation was not lost on us when a trip to the ELSPA website had all these products on display.

Among the services offered by ELSPA is their "IP Crime Unit" which "responds to information about illegal games software received from members, consumers, the retail trade and other enforcement agencies" in addition to operating a "24-hour confidential hotline for anyone wishing to give information about software pirates.

Those who see the humor in this will probably call in and report ELSPA as one of the organizations "promoting" the practice of piracy because of the information found on their very own website.

As the saying goes, the best laid plans of mice and men…
