I was planning on working this into the Sunday Papers, but because I got distracted by staring forlornly at Romanian girls and didn’t do it, I think it’s worth getting out there to stand alone. Brad Wardell, Stardock CEO, has posted a short essay about Piracy and the PC which comes at it from a completely different angle. I interviewed Stardock CEO Brad Wardell for a forthcoming issue of Gamer, where he talks about some of the issues he repeats here, but I’m glad to see him put it in a single document. To paraphrase brutally, Piracy doesn’t matter. Only sales matter.
