    <blockquote>
    <p>CDProjekt did react to the DRM issues brought up recently and <a href="http://www.gamebanshee.com/news/98226-cd-projekt-red-takes-an-official-stance-on-drm-and-patches.html" target="_blank">took a stance</a>:</p>
    </blockquote>
    <blockquote>
    <p>In response to recent unofficial statements regarding a DRM solution for The Witcher 2, Adam Kici&#324;ski, CEO of CD Projekt RED, offered the following comment: &ldquo;Given the concerns expressed by players and growing media speculation, we have decided to make public our internal DRM policy (click HERE to read the policy). Although we are the game&rsquo;s developer, we obviously won&rsquo;t be making a unilateral decision on the DRM protection that is applied to The Witcher 2. Nevertheless, our internal rules and guidelines should reassure players. As the game&rsquo;s developer, we will strive to do everything in accordance with our stated policy. <br /><br />I would also like to inform all of our fans that no decisions have yet been made as to whether The Witcher 2 will feature DRM protection or what form it might take. As per our policy, we will do our utmost to prevent the adopted DRM solution, if any, from making life difficult for those who acquire legal game copies. I can&rsquo;t imagine using any protection that would deprive game fans of any of the pleasure that will come from playing the game, as has been the case with other notable PC game titles,&rdquo; said Adam Kici&#324;ski, CEO of CD Projekt RED.</p>

    Meh. On one hand I can sympathize with CD Projekt: they're in financial trouble and need to get this game out, even if it means going with the publisher's wish and against their own. On the other hand, if they include stupid DRM like Ubisoft's then they and their game can both fuck off.

    This is what happens when you screw the pooch financially and have to rely on other publishers.

    As opposed to all those non-metaphorical occasions where screwing the pooch has such great consequences:)
