Question about GOG
How is it that gog.com is able to secure the rights to distribute certain games that steam can't due to rights issues? For example planescape torment has been available on their website for many years now for $9.99 but steam can't get it due to an issue with the ip? Where does the money from selling the game go? wouldn't that be like me taking an installed game copy from a cd, downloading a no-cd crack, pakaging it into an installer, and selling it for money under the guise of drm free? I don't get it.

It could be simply that the publisher doesn't want it to be sold on Steam because of Steam's policies and whatnot.

To my knowledge, GOG even tries a more active approach to get those old games. Steam lets the publishers come to them.

It goes to GOG and the publisher.
