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 is ridiculous. That is like saying the people who have alcoholism and manage to quit drinking shouldn't try to encourage other alcoholics to quit drinking.

No, it's like someone who was an alcoholic but quit drinking calling alcoholics assholes.

You're not surrendering moral high ground by admitting it, in fact I'm a lot more open to considering arguments from someone who is self aware enough to understand how reality and theoretical arguments differ.

I think you're misunderstanding the concept of "moral highground". There's nothing wrong with being a reformed pirate (I am one myself), but you lose the ability to make certain types of references by admitting such. You're not in a position to chastise others for their behaviour when you are guilty of the same behaviour in the past.
