The Piracy "Food Chain"

First off, piracy isn't just a few guys who work at cinemas and software stores taking the odd film or game home and sharing it on their home FTP servers or KaZaA.
Piracy on the Internet, or "the warez scene"(as those into it like to call it) is suprisingly organized. Pirated software/games/movies/anything are called warez and will referred to as that from now on.
