Shawn Guse: Whiny Warez Monkey

Some of you may have seen that Activision went after some pirates recently. Based on some follow-up comments from Activision's lawyers, my assumption is that these guys modded their consoles and created the original ISO rips of certain Activision products and/or created the original torrents used to distribute the rips. Mind you, that is my assumption and may not be fact.

That said, these guys have agreed to settlements that restrict their future behavior...and now at least one of them is trying to erase the evidence of his crime from the net.

Now, this is a civil settlement, but the settlement does contain an admission from Shawn Guse that he committed a crime.

Consider your name being linked to the crime a part of the punishment.
