I Found this article in Issue, 13.1 - January 2005 Wired magazine, the articles name is "The Shadow Internet". This article discusses p2p file sharing, also known as peer to peer file sharing, and the man that corrupted the release of halflife 2. p2p file sharing refers to people that have bootleg movies, programs, music, and basically anything someone could want and sharing these files with the world for free. Frank, a well-connected media pirate hacked into the valve servers(a game developer) and stole the source code for half life 2(a computer game) before the games release to the public for sale. He posted this code on a popular p2p website named Anathema. from here people just got the game code for free and destroyed the games release and gross sales.
