Thank you for addressing this issue. I'm a firefighter by trade and have little skill or knowledge of computers. Putting DRM software on the things I buy is overkill at best and insulting/irritating at worst. If the idea of DRM is to prevent widespread copying and illegal selling then it's unnecessary for guys like me and ineffective against the real hackers out there. If somebody sells a quality product I will pay for it. I've already paid for freeware that I liked (crap cleaner). Get rid of DRM, please.
