A friend is doing research for his school project on the topic of piracy and so I am trying to help him out. !
I don’t want to know well it could happen, I want to know REALISTICALLY!!! !!!
how many games do you estimate on steam and google were created using pirated 3D modeling software?
Do you think Autodesk or other companies would waste time going to South America to sue a person making games from a house? I doubt it.
so now we have to discuss what is realistic, would the game be pulled from steam if they found out? but how would they find out?
I am aware that the crack software phones home and they know your ip and mac address etc. But this does not tell them the name of your game neither does a FBX export contain information for them to know? !!!
If they hunted down a game on steam and pulled it apart and looked at the 3D models could they know what software etc was used to create it?
