CD Projekt Versus File-Sharers?

TorrentFreak reports that lawyers for CD Projekt are contacting individual file-sharers in Germany offering to settle accusations of pirating The Witcher 2 for 911.80 ($1,183.06). For corroboration, they point to this German page which does mention the game and that figure. Thanks Lance via Techdirt, where they note the danger such a "shakedown" can target innocent parties.

Some could be customers, such as Witcher 1. Probably a very small minority, but I have no doubt a few such exist.
Yeah, just define all downloader as freeloaders. Ignore the fact that many poetential customers use filesharing to get a look at the game before buying especially when theres no demo ...

The only ones profiting from this move are the lawyers. CD Project will loose already paying customers (like me), they will loose potential customers, they will gain not MORE customers in the short and long run with this strategy.
