My chumlings, you can read the article here According the the developers of CDP gamers shouldn't be treated with DRM and are not criminals.
The largest distributor of digital games is not steam but a website sharing pirated material. This is a sad fact of life.
CDP, themselves, sent out letters to people they "suspected" (i.e. not definitely sure) stole the Witcher 2, demanding money for it or legal action.
How is that not treating people like criminals?
