Vircom Files Piracy Complaint Over T4C Hackers

Company Seeks to Protect Copyright of MMORPG

Montreal, September 3, 2003 - Over the past weeks, it has been brought to Vircom's attention that some people are offering various emulators and other pirated software related to its MMORPG "The 4th Coming". As a consequence, the company has filed an official request to law enforcement authorities and will be prosecuting the offenders.

Reported piracy acts vary between game emulators up to complete server software theft. "Vircom will not tolerate any violation of its copyright" says Sylvain Durocher, founder and CEO of Vircom. "We have put years of effort into T4C and we are not going to let it go down because of piracy".

Vircom has filed an official complaint to legal authorities and will be prosecuting any offender who is running or distributing pirated servers, emulators or cheating software. "We already have a partial list of offenders and we are monitoring the Internet closely to track down all the persons involved", concludes Mr. Durocher.

In the meantime, the company wishes to remind T4C players that they should only connect with authorized operators to enjoy T4C. A complete list of T4C operators worldwide is available on the official T4C site.

Vircom asks T4C enthusiasts to report any offender of its T4C copyright. The information sent to this address will remain strictly confidential and will be treated with the utmost discretion.
