How does your publisher handle online distribution?
PEN – The Italian publisher Penguin House is under fire for allegedly not protecting publishers’ rights to distribute their titles online in a number of countries.
Last week, Italian publisher CINEL released a statement in which they claimed that the publisher had not received the necessary approvals to distribute the game, “The House of Lament”.CINEL president Sergio D’Alessandro said: “We don’t have the right to distribute this game in Italy, we didn’t get permission to distribute it, but we will comply.”CINel has been in the spotlight recently for its alleged anti-Semitic views, after a former publisher was forced to resign.
A representative for CINel said:We have a lot of problems in the country, including with publishers and distributors who don’t want to be part of it, and we have to do it in a fair way.
“We want to promote the game for as long as possible, to give it a chance to reach the fans.””

According to an analysis by online game publisher GamersNexus, CINEGa has around 3.5 million users, and its main platform is a forum where players can submit questions about games, reviews and the latest news.
In the past week, GamersNIxus has also discovered that CINega has been posting messages on Facebook to promote games they claim are pirated.
According to a Facebook post made by CINAGe, its members are “Pissing Off”.
GamersNIXus reports that some of the posts have been deleted but some are still available.
According for Gamers NIxus, some of these posts have become so extreme that they are triggering the “Gamer” tag.
In an email to GamersNNexus published on Monday, Cinagas representative explained that CinEGa would not comment on specific cases, but said that the company was “looking into the situation”.
GamersNEXus has since taken down the posts, and the posts that remain appear to be unedited.”
As a result of this, we are actively investigating and will take the necessary action to protect our platform.”
