Registered Contract J.A.C.K. Demo

A "public" Contract J.A.C.K. multiplayer demo is now available on FilePlanet (thanks Ant), though public may be too egalitarian a term to use for a download that is restricted to their registered users (though it does not seem that a paid account is required). As is the case with such deals, there are measures to prevent trying to circumvent the exclusive: "You MUST use a registration KEY during the installation...This KEY will allow one user to install the demo on a single PC."

I was wondering, with all of the FilePlanet bashing that goes on here, even by Blue (editorial policy slowly and subtly eroding, I see), I'm wondering if this is something specific to FilePlanet? I'm a subscriber to FP, although, to be honest, I rarely use it's service, so the only sites I check regularly are IGN and BluesNews. Do other sites offer subscription services which provide premium content, and if so, why is there no criticism aimed at them? Is FP the only one that distributes demos exclusive to its site? I don't know the answer, I don't check other sites, but I would be surprised to learn that FP is the only one. If, however, they are the only one, I wonder why they get these demos - I agree that a game most likely wouldn't get max exposure this way, but maybe the economics are changing. We all know bandwidth is expensive, and FilePlanet has to offer something for the money subscribers pay...hmmm, come to think of it, that reminds me of another site that is confronting that same issue right now.
