The anti-piracy campaign
What is piracy?
Every year thousands of pounds worth of illegal software is sold in the UK at car boot sales, markets, mail order and other outlets by unscrupulous traders. The software sold by these traders has been illegally copied without the approval of the game developers, manufacturers and distributors, and comes with no money back guarantee, instruction manuals or packaging. The only attraction is that it is cheap, often only at a fraction of the cost of the genuine item.
Why is it wrong?
The success of the computer games industry has made it a prime target for criminals. It is estimated that more than ?3 billion is lost every year by the UK industry to software pirates, which results in lost jobs and lost development opportunities, both locally and nationally.
Consumers have no recourse under law for faulty pirated goods. Pirated goods are often mixed with obscene material. There are proven links between many pirate organisations and dealers in drugs and pornography. Sales of pirate software are often used by terrorist organisations to fund terrorist activities.
Pirates sometimes try to justify their activities by claiming that paying the full price for a genuine game is a rip-off and lines the pockets of the fat-cats with your money. This is simply not true.
There are several issues here:
? It costs several million pounds to make a game in the first-place. This includes rewarding the programmers and artists whose creativity contributes so much to the games we all enjoy.
? A pirate simply pays a few pence for a gold disc, places it into a CD-writer, clicks a record button, and makes over ?4.00 profit PER SALE for his troubles. This is often more profit than the Publishers and Developers make from the sale of an original title.
The people who really suffer from game piracy are the artists, programmers and other committed game development staff. Piracy directly affects people, and their families. Loss of revenue to the games industry through piracy means many are losing their jobs due to cut-backs that have to be made to ensure developers and publishers survive.
Some of the most highly regarded, hard-working and creative people in the UK are losing their jobs while the pirates line their own pockets with your money. Where's the justice in that?
It's not just copying software that is against the law, owning copied software also constitutes a criminal offence; so anyone buying from these people is also at risk of arrest and prosecution.
This is in addition to the risk that the pirate product will be of inferior quality and often contains mechanisms that degrade the performance of the game.
The ELSPA Crime Unit was established in 1994 to safeguard the intellectual property rights of members' products.
The ELSPA Crime Unit:
1. Responds to information about illegal software received from members, consumers, the retail trade and other enforcement agencies.
2. Conducts investigations against alleged offenders.
3. Routinely makes test purchases from alleged offenders.
4. Regularly visits car boot sales and markets to monitor product being sold.
5. Executes warrants at offenders' premises.
6. Seizes infringing product.
7. Assists enforcement agencies such as Trading Standards Officers and Police
8. Authorities in investigating software piracy.
9. Maintains close liaison with Customs and Excise over the importation of illegal software.
10. Takes Legal action against those found copying and selling illegal software.
11. Attends trade shows and conferences to speak to consumers and traders.
12. Operates a 24-hour confidential hotline for anyone wishing to give information about software pirates.
Piracy leads always to arrests, community service, hefty fines and prison sentences.
For example, in a recent court case, a two-and-a-half year sentence was handed down to a Birmingham man found guilty of manufacturing counterfeit CDs. And in a separate case, a Sheffield man was given a five-month prison sentence for computer games piracy.
Legislation is provided to prosecute pirates and counterfeiters under the following acts:
? The Copyrights Designs and Patents Act of 1988,
? The Trade Marks Act of 1994,
? The Trade Descriptions Act of 1968,
? The Computer Misuse Act of 1990,
? The Forgery Act of 1981, and
? The Theft Act of 1968.

Please read before using this video game or allowing your children to use it.
Some people are susceptible to epileptic seizures or loss of consciousness when exposed to certain flashing lights or light patterns in everyday life. Such people may have a seizure while watching images or playing certain video games. This may happen even if the person has no medical history of epilepsy or has never had any epileptic seizures. If you or anyone in your family has ever had symptoms related to epilepsy (seizures or loss of consciousness) when exposed to flashing lights or patterns, consult your doctor prior to playing. We advise that parents should monitor the use of video games by their children. If you or your child experience any of the following symptoms: dizziness, blurred vision, eye or muscle twitches, loss of consciousness, disorientation, any involuntary movement or convulsion, while playing a video game, IMMEDIATELY discontinue use and consult your doctor (particularly since experience of any of these symptoms could lead to injury from falling down or striking nearby objects). Parents should ask their children about the above symptoms - children and teenagers may be more likely than adults to experience these seizures.
Precautions to Take During Use
* Do not stand too close to the screen. Sit a good distance away from the monitor, as far away as the length of the cable allows.
* Preferably play the video game on a small screen.
* Avoid playing if you are tired or have not had much sleep.
* Make sure that the room in which you playing is well lit.
* Rest for at least 10 to 15 minutes per hour while playing a video game.
[Warning: Avoid Damage to your Television]
Do not use with certain television screens and monitors. Some televisions, especially front- or rear-projection types and plasma screens, can be damaged if any video games are played on them. Static images or pictures presented during the normal course of playing a game (or from putting the game on hold or pausing) may cause permanent picture-tube damage, and may "burn in" to the screen, causing a permanent shadow of the static image to appear at all times, even when the games are not being played. Always consult your television screen or monitor manual or otherwise the manufacturer to check if video games can be played safely.
Read the Instruction Manual carefully to ensure correct usage. When inserting this disc in the [Console/PC] always place it with the required playback side facing down. When handling the disc, do not touch the surface. Hold it by the edge. Keep the disc clean and free of scratches. Should the surface become dirty, wipe it gently with a soft dry cloth. Do not leave the disc near heat sources or in direct sunlight or excessive moisture. Do not use a cracked, warped or irregularly shaped disc, or one that has been repaired with adhesives, as it could lead to malfunction or damage to your [Console/PC].
