Atari realises Davenport Lyons are bad news

Atari are severing their business connections with scammers Davenport Lyons:

Atari, which had hired Davenport Lyons (and whose games were part of the original story of falsely accused people) has now stopped the anti-piracy campaign, canceled requests for identification on various IP addresses and apparently dropped Davenport Lyons in the process. It seems Atari realized that the campaign was generating an awful lot of negative publicity. Shaking down innocent people can do that, apparently.

Since Atari make products that people might actually want to buy instead of being a scamming pure-play like DL, this makes good sense for them. Sensible companies know that pissing off your customers isn’t a good business plan.
