"The ruling overturned a lower court's decision in favor of the defendants, co-producers Alain Sarde Films and Studio Canal and distributor Universal. The suit was filed in 2003.
The defendants also were found guilty of violating French consumer protection laws, which state that a vendor must notify consumers of a product's essential characteristics.
The only notification of the copy prevention software on the DVD in this case were the letters "CP," short for "copying prohibited," in small print on the cover, a warning that the court found insufficient."
Yep! VALVE is NEXT.
There is NO mention of STEAM(ing pile of shit) on the box of Half-life 2 at all.
The Steam(ing pile of shit) that Valve thought was going to make them a packet is, eventually, going to cost them a packet.
The backlash is comming.
