I'm going to make a rare public, English-language rant on this. Wizards of the Coast basically ordered companies selling WotC PDFs to stop selling them/making them available to people who bought them legitimately. Well, Paizo warned its customers in time but RPGNow/DrivethruRPG didn't, and guess who had PDFs through both sources?

(Oh, and I realize it's not WotC's fault that RPGN/DTRPG didn't send an email, but they should have given the companies more time so that they could have, so that customers could get their legit PDF copies.)

Wizards of the Coast has now practically given people a green light to pirate PDFs. Especially PDFs people bought *legitimately*. I can go to Pirate Bay and download my PDFs if I wanted to; heck, I could download 4E if I wanted to. I'll go for buying legitimately over pirating every time; were I not boycotting MPAA and RIAA, I'd be buying a lot of movies on DVD and buying songs on iTunes. (And maybe someday I can get my KRs on legit DVD too! That would be so good!)

This is the email I would send them if I could find a bloody working email address )

ETA a very lovely forum post with the same idea )
