Braindump site owner pleads guilty in court


The whole thing began over a year ago when Microsoft filed a complaint with
the FBI alleging that Robert Keppel, the owner/operator of CheetSheets.com,
was selling products that contained actual test questions taken verbatim
from Microsoft MCSE and MCSD certification exams. In September 2001, the
made its move on Keppel, seizing a great deal of evidence. The evidence
showed that Keppel had arranged to purchase MS exam questions from a source
in Pakistan, who had obtained questions by photographing or videotaping the
exams at a Pakistani test center. Keppel began selling these questions
sometime in 1999. It's obvious that there was a lot of demand for this
material: Keppel's merchant credit card account records showed that his
business made over $750,000.
