Stardock Apparently Didn't Get The Memo About Piracy Killing The PC Gaming Market

That was a few years ago, even before the more urgent warnings from the "big" video game companies about piracy killing the PC gaming industry. So what's Stardock doing? Thanks to reader Lucretious for sending in the news that Stardock is rapidly expanding and planning new PC games. Yes, some of this is due to a local stimulus package that it's taking advantage of, but if piracy were really killing off the PC gaming industry, the company wouldn't be investing so heavily in new PC games, would it? Once again, we're seeing that companies that treat consumers, fans and users as people, and not thieves, discover that there are plenty of business models that work great.
