Software developers funds piracy. Look at leaked Quake 4 from last QuakeCon. Over 100 thousand ppl was there. So, there was big possibility of leak. And on BitTorrent is a fake called: QUAKE.4.MP.TEST.LEAK-EMPORiO. It is a fake because there's some movies and full Quake 3.

Hey hey, i sort of dissapeared for a bit...
and no i didnt pirate the game, for the exact reasons you say.
...well, that and the lime green box looks so sexy on my desk...

and im fairly sure as there is no financial exchange it isnt a legal issue. although i'm out here in the US so god knows (where else can a robber sue a houseowner for fallign through her roof and landing on a knife?)

there's the real version (it seems) on BitTorrent, i search on torrentspy and saw it. It's inevitable. Deliberately going out of your way to propagate a fake version just seems silly; it's not helping IntroVersion - it would only make the people who get it think it a lesser game and reduce the chances of them WANTING to go and buy it out of respect.

If you get a fake version it is pretty obvious it is a fake version. I really don't think there is any effect on Darwinia's reputation from this. If there is I would think it would be positive.

The fake version that people have been distributing is basically the demo. It is not malware, it does not harm anyone's computer. It simply allows a person to play one of the levels, then tells them to buy the game. How does that harm IV's reputation? I don't understand...
