CD Project Red Stops Sending Out Letters To Suspected Pirates

CD Projekt Red has been a company known for siding with their players when it comes to the DRM war. Up until recently, they chose to forgo the oppressive measures that other companies take when trying to battle piracy. However, last month the company started sending out letters threatening legal action against some pirates, unless they pay a large sum of money.

Naturally, the internet reacted the way it usually does to these things, and there was an outcry. While we can still be upset at the company for sending out the letters in the first place, we can at least be happy that they changed their stance. That’s right, they will no longer be sending out such letters.

According to co-founder Marcin Iwinski “Though we are staunch opponents of DRM because we don’t believe it has any effect on reducing piracy, we still do not condone copying games illegally. We’re doing our part to keep our relationship with you, our gaming audience, a positive one. We’ve heard your concerns, listened to your voices, and we’re responding to them.”
