Weekend Sales

A weekend deal on Steam offers the X-COM- Complete Pack for $4.99, which is almost $20.00 off this collection of classic sci-fi strategy games. There's also a weekend promo on GOG.com, where the good old gamers have a $9.98 bundle of Sacrifice and Giants: Citizen Kabuto, and those who have already purchased either title from their DRM-free marketplace can get a $1.00 discount on the other.

Uh...read theyarecomingforyou's posts. He's arguing that every download of the game while it was unable to be bought anywhere is illegal.

The thing is, that he's right, but the point is that it doesn't make any difference, are they going to retroactively enforce it? Are they enforcing it even now? Without that, it's completely meaningless to argue the legality of it if no one is going to back it up.

He's screaming and swearing over made up terms...gosh oh no. Not ever before in the entire English language has ever made up a term only for it later to become accepted into the lexicon.

You can split hairs over the legality of it all you want, but no one is justifying piracy here, the game will continue to be pirated regardless of anyone screaming about legality. Even the lawyers who argue this shit know the difference between law and what really goes on. As the the other poster said earlier, All the company has to do is send a cease and desist letter to whatever websites that are doing it. If they haven't, then hey, it's up to you. But don't try and give me some bullshit about how pirates are a problem, because if the company doesn't care, then they obviously aren't a problem. legality/illegality doesn't mean dick if no one is around to care. It doesn't make it right. Like I said, it just means no one of consequence cares.

Whining about legal definitions on a gaming message board falls into this category.
