106. "Useless" copy protection Apr 10, 2004, 19:54 Mr. Bigs
Man, some people need to get a grip. Saying copy protection's useless is the about ignorant. I've never copied a protected game, nor have I downloaded warez. But I myself can say I'm responsible for handing out my games to people. I remember when I bought UT. I gave that game out to about 20 or so friends and school-mates(sorry guys). But that's just little 'ol me. Keep counting people who've done the same, and it really adds up. I'm not arguing the fact that these copy protection schemes are getting out of hand. I'm just saying that it's there for a reason, and a damn good one. If we were to just stop copy protection, there'd be more copied games being played than originals. It's happened in the past, and that's why copy protection is here to stay. Now, you want something to yell about? Howabout valve thinking their game is so godly, they want you to be online to authenticate every time you play! Now thats one big steaming pile of BS!
