The Suffering was made available ad-supported in 2008, but the servers are now defunct. I've noticed the unofficial patches (either one) skip the check and the game will start.

How should this gray area be approached? According to the article, removing the copy protection is already necessary in order to play any retail release on Windows 10 (the game uses old SafeDisc / StarForce versions).

Have you already owned a physical copy of the game before you installed the unofficial patches? If yes, there's nothing gray about it. For new copies of The Suffering, GOG already has removed the DRM/copy protection, so there's no problems there.

I suppose it's a positive side effect that the unofficial patches make the freeware version work again.
