PSP dumping utility could bring about huge level of piracy

By Derek Sooman on
Sony PlayStation have declined to comment on the news of availability of a program which enables PlayStation users to dump the image contents of UMD discs onto memory sticks. Seemingly, the program is all over the Internet, according to a report published this morning by the British publication, Games Radar. Seemingly, the program enables users of the Sony PSP who are using firmware prior to version 1.5 to transfer the image contents of an ISO file onto memory sticks, which serve as the console's read/write media. This may mean that it will become easy for users to exchange unlicensed copies of games or other programs - all they have to do is copy the memory stick images already copied from UMD dumps.
