Not like it matters much once a game has found it's way into the pirate scene it will never disappear, you want the game back go torrent it. Not like the asset stealing developers can chase you down legally or claim the moral high-ground.

Good, stealing stuff from others shouldn't be tolerated.

The game isn't gone from my library... Though I've noticed it doesn't show the background screenshot anymore when you select it from the list.

They patched out the copied assets and what's left is original material that is obviously inspired by the original. It's just as fun as the original, imo.

The developer isn't in this country, all blizzard/activision can really sue for is distribution rights to the US and separately for each territory. ASFAIK Russia doesn't really have copyright law.

I guess it's OK as long as they get a refund.

so you're on your way home after buying a game at a gamestore, when the clerk runs up to you, takes your game away and gives you your cash back, and that's ok?

no it's not. you don't get to randomly revoke the sale after the sale is complete.


Boo-****ing-hoo. Comparing digital goods with physical goods doesn't fly.
Also, go read the Steam subscriber agreement, it covers this topic.

no, but I'm comparing a sale to a sale. regardless of what is traded or how, one party doesn't get to revoke it without consent.

just because it's in a eula doesn't make it legal. if someone takes something from you without your consent, it's theft. signing a piece of paper or clicking a checkbox doesn't change that.

I'm just surprised that so many people are willing to throw away their rights as a consumer.
