CESA calculates gaming industry losses due to portable piracy {Joystiq}

That would be a valid argument, if the company actually lost something when you made a copy of their game.
The best a illegal copy of a game will cause is a lost sale, copying something that you will never use, and therefor never buy, is nothing. The game company is not sitting there with less copies to sell, as there is a infinite supply of copies available.

Steeling a car filled with diamonds, will make the owner of that car have one less car and one set of diamonds less. This is not the case when you make a copy of something.

We don't hate 'I Hate Mountains,' a fan-made Left 4 Dead campaign {Joystiq}

I also felt that the amount of loot was lacking. After a tank, 1/3rds of the way along one map, I ran out of ammo, did not find new weapons or a ammo stash before the safe room.

All in all, if they did some minor fixes, this would be on par with Blood Harvest or Mercy Hospital. It's already way better then The Passing and Swamp Fever.
Looking forward to the L4D2 port, better lighting system, weather effects,
