You keep using the word "stealing", I don't think that it means what you think it means
Nothing was taken from anyone. Feel free to not buy the product, and have fun playing Tux Racer.
Stealing the files for the game so it doesn't function, very simple. AKA many games not including the server and mulitplayer functionality within the game executables. Anyone with a brain would call that stealing basic game functions and trapping them on the other side of the internet. Notice before highspeed internet penetration reached the ignorant masses, we got the multiplayer portions of game code game inside the game. The were complete games.
This whole bullshit the masses have bought into of buying incomplete game applications is why modern gaming is an abusive disaster of micro-transactions and lootboxes.
This whole bs free market theory you have going on in your brain is the issue, no one has a choice because in an internet enabled society, the people who don't care about gaming now effect all of gaming with their bad purchasing decisions.
Let me give you an example:
Someone like me from the 90's in gaming who wanted complete games vs the mmo buying generation, when you send your market signal to activision buying a server locked game, you now give activision the green light to do that to EVERYONE of their properties, thereby fucking up gaming for someone like myself who is computer literate and did not want abusive game practices that other consumers are voting for.
Note that the internet enabled society, means you can vote to make gaming worse for other gamers, pre-internet your stupid consumer decisions couldn't effect the whole. The internet undermines the whole concept of markets and changes society because the computer illiterate can no vote away the rights and freedoms of the computer literate.
