Anti-Piracy Company Impersonates Competitor To Steal Its Clients

We all know that anti-piracy groups use some pretty shady tactics to make a buck but I think this is the first time I've seen anything like this. Apparently there really isn't honor among scumbags.

Two employees of anti-piracy outfit MarkScan have been arrested by Indian police. The men are accused of masquerading as competing anti-piracy firm Aiplex, informing its clients via a fake website that the company was shutting down, and suggesting MarkScan as an alternative. The CEO of the company was allegedly in on the scam, which is still under investigation.
