Modern Warfare 3 Already Suffering from Piracy
Activision's latest Call of Duty game, Modern Warfare 3
, is already suffering from piracy. A disc of the PC version of the game was stolen from a warehouse in Fresno, California. According to the original story posted by VentureBeat
, the disc stolen was the second of a two disc set. The data on the disc has already been copied and circulated on the internet, but Activision is not sitting by idly.
One pirate that was allegedly caught and facing a fine of $5,000 and a permanent online ban posted a message on Craigslist, "Do not buy MW3 before release date. They will come get you. I already went through it." Investigators are showing up at suspected pirates' homes and asking them to return the copy of the disc and delete the pirated data from their hard drives in lieu of fines.
