Vote with your wallets, people.
Totally agree - its utterly stupid. There's no way they will stop it being cracked, and every way they will Hiss Off prospective customers. There are uncrackable ways to protect software, but they are not available to the general public and are insanely expensive, far too much for a mere game. The only way this pointless, useless and utterly irritating DRM saga will ever cease is not to buy DRM products. That will, finally, penetrate to the respective Games House Board Room that all is not well out there, and despite the briefings given to the contrary by Bonus motivated Staff, they are losing a shed full of cash and market share.
I have no truck with those who Crack software, a loathsome, petty, and selfish illegal activity. DRM though is not the answer "DRM is better than nothing " is a patently insane statement, as it goes no where near to resolving the real issue. Regrettably Bonus driven Clowns whose knowledge of this area is restricted to theoretical impacts on balance sheets, hold sway in those companies using it.
One day they will rejoin the Real World, however at the rate thats likely, it'll be too late - Stardock will own the MarketPlace via their very sensible approach to this daft issue
