HDCP Master Key Is Legitimate; Blu-ray Is Cracked

Try the Oxford English Dictionary. The definition it cites is:

3. a. A person or company who reproduces or uses the work of another (as a book, recording, computer program, etc.) without authority and esp. in contravention of patent or copyright; a plagiarist. Also: a thing reproduced or used in this way.

The first quote it provides is from 1608. It also provides quotes from 1668, 1703, 1758, 1822, 1887, 1928, and 1996. I would consider a word in use for over 400 years to be "old", but that's just me.

You also need to have access to JWICS (for the TS/SCI version) or SIPRNET (The Secret version). A person having a clearance doesn't mean they have access to either of those networks, and having access to either of those networks doesn't mean you have access to everything on the networks.

LexNaturalis (895838) writes "Best Buy has threatened to send a takedown notice to the ISP of Black Friday to remove its ad under the auspices of the DMCA. The site states that the owners "believe that sale prices are facts and not copyrightable, [but] we do not want to risk having this website shut down due to a DMCA take down notice." This is reminiscent of a similar story three years ago with the same aggressor but a different target."
