StarForce strikes the pirates!


The StarForce Technologies took part in SofTool 2005 – a major Russian IT exhibition, where the company presented a new product - StarForce Frontline.

It is a multilevel control system for protection installation. The new platform complies with any software, games, business applications and online products including e-books.

StarForce presented three versions: Basic, Pro and Elite. Each of these allows combining the choice of optimal protection policies with a flexible DRM mechanism.

StarForce held an unprecedented action at its stand daily during the exhibition: “Exchange your pirated disk for a licensed game”.

The leading Russian game publishers such as 1C, Akkela and Russobit-M in cooperation with StarForce provided approximately a thousand CDs with games which were exchanged for over three thousand pirated CDs of various content.

After the exhibition the disks were destroyed.

This was a rare case when pirated CDs were voluntarily surrendered opposed to being officially withdrawn by authorities. The StarForce Technologies one of the world’s leaders in copy protection will continue such actions on regular basis to evolve the habit of using licensed products.
