thurstonxhowell: AcneVulgaris: Vegan Meat Popsicle: piracy is a huge problem for everybodyI really hate this bullshiat line from software companies.It's exclusively YOUR problem, it is not in any way MY problem. I give exactly zero farks about it and I will concede to you exactly no leeway in your fight against it. As a paying customer, all I care about is that what I bought works, so if it doesn't work properly in some manner, I don't really care to hear your excuses. The fact is that it's broken and it's your fault, and I will hold it against you, so fark off.Next time you lose your car keys, blame GM, not people that would steal your car if it didn't require keys.Locks on car doors protect my car. If they were not provided by the manufacturer, I would seek out another scheme to protect my car. Locks on digital content protect their content. If it was not forced upon me, I would never even think about it.Dealing with shiatty DRM schemes has been a tremendous pain in the ass since I grew up and started paying for all my content years ago. Paying customers are getting hosed while pirates get to enjoy content free of that nonsense.
Iceberg659: I can't be the only one who read the headline and briefly wondered WTF a magician teller was, can I?
TheGogmagog: There are plenty of places that sell DRM free music at least. There used to be a music store tied to windows media player (at one point it was called Urge). I bought some music that was DRM free, then the next purchase was DRM protected. I didn't notice this for a few weeks until I tried moving it to a generic mp3 player. I e-mailed the store and 'returned' my purchase, I was surprised they didn't even argue just returned the credit.
