    Um, if the developer torrented it and you downloaded that torrent, you have not pirated the game.

    It would be interesting to know if this approach did lead to any more sales.

    Also, re-reading the story, I notice that it refers to the "pirated version" of the game. Really, the copyright holder torrented it, so how can it be pirated? Unimpressed...

    Remarkably (given my general contempt for piracy) I actually completely agree with alantwelve; this isn't piracy. It's not piracy if it was company policy leak torrents. This is like Britney leaking her schedule to paparazzi and then then complaining about being followed everywhere she goes.

    This is an iPhone game? I've never used my iPhone for gaming, but I assume there's no way of getting demos?
