Peter Moore stands up for pirates

In what might seem like a strange move for one of the most influential faces of gaming, Peter Moore has taken a stand against suing those who pirate videogames. While speaking at this year’s Leipzig Games Convention, Moore told, “I’m not a huge fan of trying to punish your consumer. Albeit these people have clearly stolen intellectual property, I think there are better ways of resolving this within our power as developers and publishers.”

He continued, “We absolutely should crack down on piracy. People put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into their content and deserve to get paid for it. It’s absolutely wrong, it is stealing. But at the same time I think there are better solutions than chasing people for money. I’m not sure what they are, other than to build game experiences that make it more difficult for there to be any value in pirating games.”

It’s certainly an interesting position to take, but we can only wonder what kind of ideas Moore might have brewing in that dome of his.
