Widespread software and product piracy poses serious problems for the games industry and threatens the economic livelihood of many computer and video game developers and publishers. Entertainment software providers use various tools such as technical copy protection devices or server-based gaming to protect the intellectual property of many creatives. Nevertheless, the damage is substantial and continues to increase through pirate servers and illegal keyselling.
game is committed to fight piracy through active participation in the legislative process and preventive education and, in the medium term, to reducing the economic damage to the games industry. To this end, game exchanges information with other industry associations and regularly commissions landscaping on illegal uses of games in Germany. In addition, the game coordinates measures to combat structurally copyright infringing websites.
