Do you thik these groups are making money from releasing software the same day (or before) its released to the public. i figure they must be some how, either through webpages they post on that share the advertiser revenue with them or by selling the releases to websites like sharereactor.
I know it takes a bit of effort to make a Crack. there is not a program that creates a crack for you with a few clicks, you have to take apart the original .exe and know how to restructure it. and they are releasing many games a day sometimes.
I dont think they would risk getting busted for nothing
