But most of the time there isn't, and that's why the situation demands that people and companies take proper measures. And the police/insurance/justice system will most likely tell you you've been incredibly stupid by leaving your car running with your keys still in the ignition.
Tell you what. How bout I leave my car unlocked with my keys in the ingnition and the engine running. Then you take my car. We'll see who the court sides with.

You're making it out like Crytek put this on their own torrent site are are shocked people started downloading it.
PropheT wrote on Feb 12, 2011, 18:26:You must be be equally enraged by the policies of insurance companies who _demand_ that you lock up your stuff, otherwise you simple don't get payed.
That's a legitimate contender for the most asinine thing I've ever read here.
Someone steals your stuff, it's your fault for not locking it up better? You seriously don't think the fault lies with the person who stole it?
Rilcon wrote on Feb 12, 2011, 18:01:Yup, but what does it matter in this case? It happens to almost all the games, media, movies, etc. Also wikileaks. Once something hits the net, there is no stopping it.
The people after the first seeder, them be pirates, they have nothing to do with Crytek and their lot; they just want a free game.
Wolfox wrote on Feb 12, 2011, 18:01:But no insurance will pay you if you didn't lock your car or we're careless in any other way. You can argue that no decent man in their right mind would steal from your un-locked car, but that still wouldn't hold up.
No one would rob cars or other items if no one would buy it.
Rilcon wrote on Feb 12, 2011, 17:27:But that's not the issue here, they seem to blame it on piracy, while (i must make an assumption here) the leak was due to an internal fault (bad security/etc).
That there was an internal build leaked is someone's fault (and jesus christ there are a lot of potential culprits, from Crytek, localization studios, USK/ESRB/PEGI whatever, loads). However, that there are people out there downloading and playing it, that's piracy.
The longer PC gamers (look at many people in these comments) deny the effect of piracy on PC gaming the worse it'll get.I've made this statement before, and I will make it again now: piracy has no real ties to any platform. So the generalization that PC gamers = pirates is a huge mistake and dismisses the fact that any platform that suffers from pirates still has a LOT of legitimate customers, who besides having to suffer from the effects of piracy (DRM) also have to suffer from the accusations of people who generalize. The fact that PC gaming is still alive and pretty strong considering the fierce platform competition, is a testament of still a strong support from the community.
