Cliff Harris is the owner and sole employee of Positech Games, an independent developer in the United Kingdom. He's ranted across forums about game piracy, having seen his precious creations, Kudos and Democracy, end up on torrent sites for anyone to illegally download. Cliff wanted to know why. His games were competitively priced, he updated regularly, and he was just a small developer. So he asked pirates to help him understand them by posting a request on his blog to tell them why they pirated his games.
