The german law strongly favors the party sending such letters. The recipient of such a letter has very few options to fight such a claim, without eventually paying much more money in total - that's what's lead to a whole industry in Germany doing nothing else but sending these letters. There are single lawyers who have thousands of these things sent per year and they make millions this way. CDProjekt obviously knows this and they want their piece of the cake.
The copyright lobby is very powerful in Germany as well, so there is little hope that this intimidation tactic will end anytime soon.
Anyway, yes - just for being part of this despicable technique, I can't say I still like CDP as much as I used to.
