Company releases cracked version of their game rather than recompile it

<< < (2/2)

this is becoming more prevalent as publishers try to make money on their older titles. as the original dev team might not be around, they're becoming more reliant on these 'cracked' versions. even which sells DRM-free older games was supplied with such an exe recently (Arcanum), so that it becomes "DRM free". another major publisher found using them was Ubisoft, for one of the Rainbow 6 games, iirc.

I think the lesson I'm taking away from this scenario is that these game companies endorse & readily embrace the use of cracked/hacked/reverse-engineered executables on their games & therefore I shall use them with impunity and no guilt regarding their products.

I do wonder if there were ever a court case and such information were entered into evidence if a judge would share my views.
