    Compress any file to 4 bytes

    And you can buy the patent (pending) for only 50,000,000 euros. http://www.patentauction.com/patent.php?nb=5636

    Information is no longer a person to steal it could take four byte code in any place that wants to be. And then to retrieve the entire data.
    Sounds like hash "compression".

    I think this man just bought a server in some server room, with storage limit of 2^32 files and his compressor simply uploads a file. When trying to compress a file, when that server is full, the program will kill the owner and destroy the computer.
