Actually… I’d love to these “protection bi*ches” get a little quartering in their diet, much like Lawyers and bankers but thats for another day. :g Ahh… copy protection: the bane of modern day “anal digital behaviour”… The need to overly protect digital property so much so that it actually defines the customer indirectly as a criminal. So much for the right of legal backups, so much for NOT having to worry about hidden device drivers being subversively installed, so much for having to possibly even think about worrying about the CD reader you can use with the product used, so much for fast game startups or wearing out media and drive + allievating the constant CD whizzing sound… Protection schemes are needed to protect digital property but this utter trite needs to be shoved up the protection company’s arse! Its just plain damn wrong and yet another removal of the power of the consumer. Glad there’s discussion over this as more publicity the more it’ll be villified. And right it should be: its evil. Remember: A Game sells on Merit, and not how well you protect it. Even if it were dupped, a quality product gets sold regardless of hype or not.
