Not entirely true… not entirely I said!
It depends on the deal initially… and how well the publisher expects the game to sell.
Also depends on what bonus scheme the individual developers for the Game Studio are on, if they are on product sale related bonuses then I should imagine they want the game to sell loads and not be pirated?
The problem lies firmly and squarely with the EULA - its not consistent in its approach!
Either you are allowed to make a back-up or you are not - they cannot possibly entertain the idea of certain geographic locations being allowed to make backups, whereas other regions cannot - that is ludicrous and is an infringement upon civil liberties.
It was also ‘HILARIOUS’ to see that SONY screwed themselves over with MODCHIPS…!!!
They claimed to the EU Courts that the PS2 was a PC, thus avoiding paying extra TAXES on the product, they must have thought they were very clever here!
Only for an Italian court to rule against them, as they claimed it was a PC, and only allowed PS2 games to be played on it - it was therefore monopolistic and contravened Italian law - The judge said it was like making a FIAT and only allowing Italians to drive it!
So, classic case of a big corporation making itself look pretty stupid…
I don’t know where the debate goes from here -!
But have to say, love this forum - there are some very, very switched on people on here!
