hammerjack
 n.— «A hammerjack is someone who pirates software code and sells to the highest bidder. Cray Alden used to do the same but is now employed to hunt down others in the same trade. Unsurprisingly, an assassin is put on his tail to both kill and remove some code that he’s also carrying.» —“Hammerjack by Marc D. Giller” by Geoff Willmetts  SFcrowsnest.com Jan. 1, 2007.
