EFF Seeks DMCA Exemption to Preserve Abandoned Games

http://torrentfreak.com/eff-seeks-dm...-games-150409/

Quote:
The EFF and the Entertainment Software Alliance are going head-to-head over the need to preserve functionality in abandoned games. The EFF wants an exemption to the DMCA to keep games alive after its servers are closed down, but the ESA and its allies the MPAA and RIAA are vigorously opposing the digital rights group.

While video gaming used to be a strictly offline affair, in the current market many titles require continued access to custom online resources in order to function.

Updates, patches and multi-player support aside, some titles simply cease to function when their developers or publishers decide that the game has outlived its usefulness.

While this is convenient for companies looking to promote the latest titles to their customer bases, those who have invested in software are regularly abandoned along with their now-useless games.
