CDV Transitioning to TAGES(tm) Copy Protection

Upcoming PC titles to switch to new format of copy protection

In response to consumer demand, CDV Software Entertainment is pleased to announce that they will be migrating to TAGES brand copy protection for future game releases. TAGES will first be integrated into the retail release of Glory of the Roman Empire, scheduled to ship on June 26 across North America. After the release of Glory of the Roman Empire, CDV will continue to integrate TAGES on a case-by-case basis.

"We believe that TAGES will provide a sensible balance between protecting CDV's intellectual property rights against piracy, while at the same time minimizing the restrictions experienced by legitimate owners of our products," explained CDV's Chief Technology Officer, Teut Weidemann.
