CD Projekt Red: Otvoreno pismo igračima

Vođe poljskog studija CD Projekt Red, autora igara Witcher i Witcher 2, odlučili su da se javno oglase povodom glasina da su se upustili u sudsku borbu sa potencijalnim korisnicima ilegalno pribavljenih primeraka njihove igre.

An Open Letter to the Gaming Community from CD Projekt RED

In early December, an article was published about a law firm acting on behalf of CD Projekt RED, contacting individuals who had downloaded The Witcher 2 illegally and seeking financial compensation for copyright infringement. The news about our decision to combat piracy directly, instead of with DRM, spread quickly and with it came a number of concerns from the community. Repeatedly, gamers just like you have said that our methods might wrongly accuse people who have never violated our copyright and expressed serious concern about our actions.

Being part of a community is a give-and-take process. We only succeed because you have faith in us, and we have worked hard over the years to build up that trust. We were sorry to see that many gamers felt that our actions didn't respect the faith that they have put into CD Projekt RED. Our fans always have been and remain our greatest concern, and we pride ourselves on the fact that you all know that we listen to you and take your opinions to heart. While we are confident that no one who legally owns one of our games has been required to compensate us for copyright infringement, we value our fans, our supporters, and our community too highly to take the chance that we might ever falsely accuse even one individual.

So we've decided that we will immediately cease identifying and contacting pirates.

Let's make this clear: we don't support piracy. It hurts us, the developers. It hurts the industry as a whole. 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. But you need to help us and do your part: don't be indifferent to piracy. If you see a friend playing an illegal copy of a game-any game-tell your friend that they're undermining the possible success of the developer who created the very game that they are enjoying. Unless you support the developers who make the games you play, unless you pay for those games, we won't be able to produce new excellent titles for you.

Keep on playing,

Marcin Iwinski
CD Projekt RED

  1. Lepo napisano i sasvim fer.

  2. Te tužbe gotovo nikad ne urode plodom, i Poljaci su to shvatili. Em su uštedeli pare kojima bi plaćali advokate, em su imali priliku za publicity stunt. Win-win sa ekonomskog stanovišta.

  3. Momci su ispali na kraju priče korektni i vidi se da im je stvarno stalo do igrača! Povukli su par hrabrih poteza pogotovu oko tog DRMa i zbog toga već popili kazne od izdavača, ali su shvatili da je to najbolje za igrače!
    Žrtvovali su sebe zarad svojih principa i ostali dosledni. Malo je developera koji imaju muda da urade tako nešto! Pogotovu kada su pod ugovorom sa izdavačem! Svaka im čast! Zahvaljujući njima stvarno imam utisak da je ostao neko normalan koji ne gleda samo kako što pre da zgrne kintu pa čak i u ovom poslu, već da se stvarno trude da naprave kvalitetnu igru i to na više nivoa, a to svakako treba pohvaliti kupovinom originala!
