The longer Companies try to thrust this DRM crap on the consumer the more consumers will realise they are not getting what they paid for and more so (as I have found out numerous times now buying genuine products only to have the DRM problems) the expensive goods they have purchased do not work as they are supposed to out of the box (PC Games is the No1 when it comes to not working when installed) , is it no wonder people turm to just downloading free of charge a version of the program that works properly from the start (Maybe because it has had the DRM crap removed to make it work right first time). Oh well they want to overcharge and sell software which will not work properly on consumers (customers) computers to purely increase their profit margins will only result in lots of lost sales from consumers who basically, and there is no other way to say it as a consumer, and from my own personal experiences with DRM, and that is the DRM only creates a pain in the ass (well from my experience of software with DRM 85% does not work out of the box) and makes the consumer think twice (if twice?) about paying for future crippled ware products and instead just download a actual copy that WILL WORK from the time it is installed. I say stuff the Adolf Hitler companies that try to control my use of legitimate software (if I can use it at all at first) and if they want to survive at all longterm they should be concentrating on an actual good product at a good price which doesn\\\'t piss customers of with their DRM (Dumb Ripoff Protection) not being able to use the software out of the box. They want to do themselves in well they just need to keep going the way tyey currently are, after all people the problem is the companies that put this extra costing crap on their disks that cause the problems.
