Witcher 2 Torrents Could Net You a Fine

An anonymous reader writes with this quote from Eurogamer: “Gamers who download upcoming PC exclusive The Witcher 2 illegally could receive a letter demanding they pay a fine or face legal action. If gamers refuse to pay the fine, which will be more than the cost of the game, they could end up in court, developer CD Projekt told Eurogamer. ‘Of course we’re not happy when people are pirating our games, so we are signing with legal firms and torrent sneaking companies,’ CD Projekt co-founder Marcin Iwiski said. ‘In quite a few big countries, when people are downloading it illegally they can expect a letter from a legal firm saying, “Hey, you downloaded it illegally and right now you have to pay a fine.” We are totally fair, but if you decide you will not buy it legally there is a chance you’ll get a letter. We are talking about it right now.’ Interestingly, The Witcher 2 will be released free of digital rights management – but only through the CD Projekt-owned digital download shop GOG.com. That means owners will be able to install it as many times as they like on any number of computers – and it will not requite an internet connection to run.”
