Video Game Will Be DRM-Free To Catch Pirates

Video Game Will Be DRM-Free To Catch Pirates

Every consumer will like the fact that a developer has decided not to fill its games with annoying DRM, and that’s what CD Projekt, the developer of the video game “The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings” seems to be going to do. However, the alarm bells are already ringing for a good reason. The Polish company is actually planning to snoop on torrent websites and then send out infringement notices to suspected pirates.

It was quite unusual to hear about the CD Projekt’s intention to release their new game next year completely without DRM. Lots of the reading consumers were impressed by this move. Most of the gamers are looking at this decision as an opportunity to show the entertainment industry that the developers are able to release games without any DRM and still become a success. The overall message mulled online was something like “let’s prove this statement by supporting a company that decided to treat its customers as customers, not as criminals by default”.

However, not all of those supporting this point remember the case of few years ago, when lots of subscribers began receiving letters from anti-piracy law firm Davenport Lyons that demanded cash settlements. Those letters also included demands for payment on an Atari game called “The Witcher”.

Now the company is marketing and distributing “The Witcher 2”, and it’s unclear whether the DRM-free release shows that it has more control over things now. However, the company’s co-founder announced recently that they are signing with legal and torrent sneaking companies. Since in many countries people can expect warnings from a legal firm for unauthorized downloading, the company admits that they fairly warned everyone who decided to pirate the game of a chance to get a legal letter.

In other words, they are going to employ the same tactic as the other developers: the “sneaking” firms would harvest IPs from torrent swarms and simply farm them all out to broadband providers via the courts. As usual, the Internet service providers will do what they can to match the IP addresses with their customer records, but will keep making mistakes and the wrong people will be accused in the letters sent out by anti-piracy law firms to account owners, even though they never did any file-sharing at all.

Well, the game is scheduled to come out in next May, so CD Projekt has enough time to change its mind.

ryanemm avatarThe game is available for free preorder on GOG, with free goodies for registering interest.

I really hope we get behind this move by CD projekt and support them for this bold move, of course the game will be heavily pirated, however I hope this move proves fruitful for them and is used in future games and by other companies
