* GoG: DRM creates piracy

The guys who run the stellar service Good Old Games have stated that they believe piracy is caused by, not fought by, DRM schemes.

According to Kukawski, the situation with restrictive DRM has reached the point where gamers often feel pushed into buying a game at full price, but then still download a cracked version to avoid the DRM. 'I know people that buy an original copy of the game just so they don't feel guilty,' says Kukawski, 'and then they will play a pirated version which is stripped of all DRM. That?s not how it should be. Let?s treat legitimate customers with respect and they will give that back.'
They run a wonderful service - DRM free and lots of extras. Take a look in their collection and see if there's something you want to pick up!
