"Yarnton: “We can’t divulge any technical details on that but needless to say this is probably one of our best pieces of equipment in that respect. There are a lot of things we’ve learnt over time to try and improve the security and protection – not only of our IP but of our third-party publishers’ IP as well.

”Honeywell: “I think perhaps there’s been a ‘heyday of piracy’ and we’ve now seen a lot of rules come in to stop it.

”And Yarnton once more: “Recently there have been a couple of rulings with R4s where people have been found guilty and had quite significant sentences against them. This now makes a precedent that potentially in the future it won’t be a viable thing for people to do.”

Sometimes it's alright to boast and sometimes it best to just keep yer trap shut.

This wasn't the time to boast.
