DJL (Dave J Looker) was the author of the Speedlock protection system, used on many cassette games released in the UK. Speedlock was a modified version of the Spectrum's cassette routines with protection added.
A separate disc protection system, 8k Speedlock, relied on the fact that the CPC's hardware could reliably read but not write 8k sectors. To get around this, the Executioner's utility Xexor included a 'brain file' solution to crack individual games before copying them.
