    No copyright holder will be happy to see their work being shared for free on pirate sites
    So basically click bait then.

    Gotta disagree with you there:
    the developers behind the popular PlayStation Vita game Superbeat Xonic, are thanking pirates after a cracked version of their game was widely shared on Reddit.

    They even went so far as to offer additional discounts to these pirates so that they can purchase a legitimate copy.
    And reading up on Reddit, they really did that. and got quite a positive response about it as well.

    So yeah, while the first sentence doesn't do wonders, the article really is about the developer being happy people are pirating the game

    I remember the creator of McPixel did the same thing when it wound up on pirate bay.
