I have to now question the validity of this post. I have recently learned of some new information that shows that CD Projekt is using dubious means to snag more money from people they claim are pirates. Link
The price CD Projekt is asking through their lawyers is slightly higher than what gamers have to pay in stores, to say the least. Over the past several months thousands of alleged BitTorrent users in Germany were asked to cough up 911,80 euros ($1230) to pay off their apparent debt to the company.
As is often the case, these mass settlement schemes do not exist without collateral damage. Aside from targeting many people who indeed downloaded and shared the game without paying, CD Projekt’s lawyers are also wrongfully accusing people who have never even heard of the game.
After all, an IP-address doesn’t identify a person, and Wi-Fi piggybacking is not unusual. But CD Projekt, who don’t want to bug legitimate consumers with DRM, apparently take this collateral damage for granted.
If this is the case, that they are using IP addresses and mass lawsuits, I no longer want to be considered a customer of theirs. Using this method of copyright shakedown is underhanded and unethical in my view. I will gladly play the games, but any interest that I have in GoG or any other games is gone.
