Yes, it ranks right up there with "patent trolls" enforcing their patents by sueing big companies instead of letting them "liberate" the IP for free....

If you watched or read about Frank Abagnale in Catch Me If You Can you know his story ended (happily) with him working for the feds to catch those perps who were doing what he had done.....this after some serious jail time.
Kind of an unusual method of learning a trade....but effective.

This doesn't really have anything to do with the book publishing division (if true) it's about the satellite TV encryption... Forgetting the ethics, it's hard to imagine a book publisher hiring a hacker to do anything. (other than write a book maybe.)
