Paradox Adopts GOO

Stardock's GOO protects PC games from piracy
Stardock also announced that Paradox Interactive will be using Stardock's Game Object Obfuscation (GOO) to protect Paradox PC game titles from piracy. Beginning with the Paradox title Majesty 2 and continuing on with other titles for both retail and electronic software sales, Paradox will wrap the games in GOO. GOO is a new technology that developers can use to protect their game executable. When a protected game is run for the first-time, the player simply needs to enter in their email address and serial number. Once validated, the game can be played normally and typically never needs to connect to the Internet account.
