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.

That's a deliberate obfuscation of the reality. An IP address can be identified by the ISP that issued it, while the local IP address can ascertain which computer / device on the network accessed it.

And that's spouted nonsense. The ISP has a record of who is paying for a connection, period. They don't know who's actually using the connection, they don't know what computers are behind the connection, they don't know if the connection is shared, or whether there's an open wireless connection. So if they get contacted about an ip address, they can't give them any of that information. All the company gets is the name of the person who "owns" the connection. And is not sufficient to demonstrate who actually downloaded the game from that ip. And anyone with a basic understanding of how the internet works should know that.

You're trying to introduce doubt in an attempt to let those infringing copyright off the hook.

Yes, because CD Projekt is going to stop doing it just because I posted! I just have that much influence over them.

How about people just buy the fucking game or pass on it, like the rest of us do.

See, when you've already admitted that you "used to" pirate games, it is much, MUCH too late for you to be taking the moral highground.
