CD Projekt vs Piracy

Though CD Projekt is planning on releasing The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings without DRM, it does not mean they plan on taking piracy of their upcoming RPG sequel lightly. Eurogamer has word that their plan is to attempt to "fine" those who pirate the game. "Of course we're not happy when people are pirating our games, so we are signing with legal firms and torrent sneaking companies," CD Projekt co-founder Marcin Iwiński tells them. "In quite a few big countries, when people are downloading it illegally they can expect a letter from a legal firm saying, 'Hey, you downloaded it illegally and right now you have to pay a fine.' We are totally fair, but if you decide you will not buy it legally there is a chance you'll get a letter. We are talking about it right now."

You do realize that food samples are regularly given out for free at supermarkets, right?

You mean like game demos?

There's a pretty obvious difference between taking something and copying something... blah blah blah

wow I've never heard that argument before. And now I read it, I totally understand how piracy is just fine, and I can just pirate my food, rather than relying on people who enjoy my games buying them, and me spending the proceeds on the food.

The sense of entitlement of pro-piracy 'gamers' is sickening. No wonder farmville and evony is where all the money is now. Imagine what cool PC games we would have now if hardcore gamers were as ready to actually pay for games as casual gamers are...
