    Hi, i want to know what you think about copy protection?
    Is it good for the legal consumer, who bought the movies?
    Whats your opinion?

    For me i would say no, because i am limited in how and where i want to watch the movie!
    What is if i want to watch the movie on my tablet? it is legally not possible.
    Not everywhere it is allowed to remove the copy protection!
    So for me copy proctection has no future, because mobile devices without an optical diskdrive are getting more and more popular, like smartphones and tablets.

    copy protection?!
    seriously!!
    i am the legal owner of an age-old game..
    age of empires,
    i even have the original cd..
    whenever you start the game, it demands that
    you put the cd into your drive.
    of course you can`t be bothered to dig it
    up everytime..so you get a hack..
    my next pc won`t even have a cd-drive..
    so what do you expect?

    Steam FTW, Hollywood and their distribution system is so antiquated that it makes dodo's look modern.

    to me copy protection is only made to provide guilt to users
    and naturally more annoyance

    those who want to buy legal and who can, they will

    but considering how much everything became crap lately (mostly music and movies, well some games too...)
    its bigger downfall to those who buy and are unsatisfied later with no refund
    and major companies live from such rip-off

    Steam sucks, it has DRM and allows developers to pile their own DRM on top. Also uses Intel DRM to lock the game to your motherboard. Nothing like asking mommy every time you want to play a game.
