The highly controversial SOPA & PIPA bills currently being rushed through Congress by Big Media are encountering ever more opposition from minor and major players alike, such as Google. Now gog.com, owned by parent company CD Projekt RED, has come out against these bills too and are one of many games companies to do so. They address the questions of "will it work?" and "will it stop piracy?" with the answers being sort-of and no. Yes, it might "work" in the sense that total control of the internet is placed into the hands of big media conglomerates and undermine its very structure: It won't stop piracy, but will kill many forms of free speech and interesting and helpful content that we find on the internet today: CD Projekt RED is the company that sells DRM-free older games on its www.gog.com website and does not believe in DRM (a good thing). However, this is also the same company that is currently extorting money from alleged 'pirates' of their game, The Witcher 2, so they aren't above a bit of underhand tactics themselves, which is worth bearing in mind when seeing them speak out against bad bills like these.
