ESA Threatens IF Archive Mirror

by Nick Montfort · , 10:36 pm

The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) has issued a threatening legal notice to a person who mirrors the Interactive Fiction Archive because a person at this organization is painfully and pitifully laboring under the mistaken belief that a file named “Doom3.zip” (a 114KB file, uploaded almost 5 years ago) is an unauthorized copy of a game created by some company they represent. May these and similar bounty hunters all go the way of Boba Fett.
