3 Big data security analytics techniques

A Spanish developer of a cheap software copy protection system has claimed that his solution is being ignored by the games console industry. Elias Megido says his firm has developed and patented a one peseta system that will prevent illicit use of games on Sony and Sega machines. But although he has a prototype it wants to show to the industry, no-one from the major games companies has answered his mailings or telephone calls. He said: "We must suppose the industry is very interested in piracy bacause our system has no electrical or software components and it cost less than one peseta for each disk we protect. Many games producers told us that they don't want to know anything unless we have the approval of the major companies. We cannot understand it." Megido can be contacted by email here ®
