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."
