Don’t Copy That Floppy (Or Else!)

By Guy Verona - Friday, January 21, 2011

So I thought it would be fun to take a look into the past today, with what is quite possibly the most famous anti-piracy advert ever made ‘Don’t Copy That Floppy’, produced by the SPA (that’s Software Publishers Association) back in 1992.

Unfortunately Grandmaster Disk Protector didn’t have the desired effect of stopping youngsters from pirating video games , but luckily despite the passage of many years and millions of pirated bits of software later, the computer industry is still going strong.
