If cracking is to some degree a political message (i.e. anti-corporate), then can these Clans be considered revolutionaries To some extent these crackers are not just doing it for free video games. There is a political message against security and copyright laws. These people do it for fun, because they want to. There is also a sort of Cloak and Dagger element where the Clans try to break and find ways around the newest security features, while avoiding the FBI and corporate lawyers. There is also competition and pride to see which Clan is able to crack and distribute the cracks first. The cracks are distributed as \"warez\". Warez, however, does not imply video games alone, but to any application that has been cracked. The difference between warez and cracks is that a crack implies the actual crack breaks the software anti-pirate protection. Warez is a distribution that includes not just the crack, but the actual piece of software itself. So, a person could own a legitimate copy of a game and just want the crack so they do not have to put in the CD every time they play the game. The warez is the illegally distributed copy of the game with accompanying cracks. For reasons of clarity, in these articles I have adopted the term crack to imply both the crack and the distributed game. This is so there is less confusion about the definitions of the two for the reader.
Anothger way that these clans mirror corporate culture is their logos. The logos are displayed in a file with the extension .nfo. The player must use notepad or some other text editor to open up the .nfo file to read its contents. This file contains all of the information about the crack and and about the game that has been downloaded. These .nfo files may also contain such information as serial numbers to use in case the game requires one. .nfo file can be found for download at www.isonews.com
 Though not explicitly relevant here, the Court notes that the plot of \"The Peacemaker\" is at least as similar, or as likely derived from, the \"plot\" of the Cockburns' Article and/or the Cockburns' Film Treatment, as it is from the works making up Idema's Story. Present in both the Cockburns' Article and \"The Peacemaker\" are the KGB/mafia \"front\" company running out of Vienna (with the name \"Nordex\" changed to the name \"Kordech\"), both emphasize the importance of dismantlement treaties (e.g., S.T.A.R.T.) as providing a reason for the transport of large numbers of nuclear warheads from one place to another within the confines of Russia and/or the storage of these warheads in remote and ineffectively guarded locations (both specifically name Chelyabinsk), and both focus on the underpayment/temptation of Russian soldiers as a primary threat to the security of these warheads. The Cockburns' Film Treatment adds to this the plot twists of warheads being stolen from a train, of the U.S. team being headed by a female nuclear physicist who heads the Nuclear Smuggling Working Group, and of the warheads ending up in the hands of the Bosnian Serbs, all of which appear in the film.
