Just because things are everywhere on the 'net does not mean they're legal. Most forums just don't take the risk of having links to piracy or piracy related things. We're not any different.

Admins, do we want links to legally debatable content on the forums?

ill admit the source is at the least questionable, but it is absolutley legal to use a no-cd patch for a game you own. you guys seem to (wisely) want to be on the safe side, so i would say leave the links off.
BUT:
on the otherhand, what possible repercussions are there? anyone know?

ID may not support us like they have been if links like that were on this site. No-CD cracks may be a convience for people that legally purchased the game but they also allow people to pirate the game. I agree fully that they should not be posted and removed quickly if they are posted.

It depends what the type of CD-Key crack is. If it's distributing a cracked version of doom3.exe, then it is most certainly illegal, as it's distributing id's copyrighted code. If it's a patch that's applied, it's more borderline.

a game company will never (with one exception that i can think of but cant remember the name of) release an official no-cd patch. a no-cd version of doom is a cracked version because that is one form of copy protection, unless i am misunderstanding what cracked means. this perspective makes the choice of allowing or blocking links easy

Not true. Ut2k4 doesn't require a cd to play without any cracks.

Most Unreal engine based games I can think of get CD checking removed in later patches. Unreal Tournament, Unreal, Unreal Tournament 2003/2004, Rune. I'm not sure, but I think Unreal 2 even has it removed in later versions!

This, however, does not change the legality of a No-CD CRACK. It's very convenient to have, and though some games legally no longer check for the CD, it's still illegal. Why do you think they put the protection there to begin with? So you must have the CD!

This problem will be phased out, soon. The Doom 3 1.2 patch already removes the need to have the CD in, so I assume that 1.3 will not require you to have it in. So once a new version of LMS is out, your troubles are over.

This thread should probably be frozen soon.
