Quoteworthy - Paradox on DRM

"No one should have to purchase a product that theyíre unable to install because of the DRM. There might be other reasons, like the compatibility isnít correct, or whatever. But people who purchase a game should have just as easy a time as those who pirate the game, otherwise itís a negative incentive to buy a legal copy. And I just canít see why people are using DRM still. If you take something like Sonyís DRM, SecuROM -- itís a waste of money," says Paradox CEO Fred Wester. "It will keep you protected for three days, it will create a lot of technical support, and it will not increase sales. And I know this for a fact, because we tried it eight years ago, and it never worked for us. Two major reasons: it costs money and it makes you lose money, and the other is that itís so inconvenient to customers."

And on the other hand you have horrific markups for the EU and Australia for I don't even know what reason.

Your kidding right?

GREED.

For decades greedy media corporations have been raping the consumer.
However NOW the consumer has more power and choice.
Even if that choice is piracy the consequences to the individual is almost non existent.
Now the greedy media corporations are having a "throw yourself on the floor, kicking and screaming" tantrum because the power balance is shifting in the direction of the consumer not the greedy corporation.
They want you "consuming" not "sharing".
That is why you have COICA, SOPA, PIPA and whatever they called that video tape one.
I for one hope I live long enough to see Wall Street BURN.
It will happen. It's only a matter of time.
I hope when the dust settles they build something that works better for ALL people not just the privileged few.
