FTC Town Hall to Address Digital Rights Management Technologies - Event Takes Place Wednesday, March 25, 2009, in Seattle

I am a law-abiding American citizen, a tax payer, and a member of what is called the "gaming" culture. I have never stolen a game in any form, and do not think that I should bear the weight for people who choose to steal games. These companies have a right to protect their profits and interests, of course. DRM does not do any such thing however, providing neither a substantial obstacle for thieves, nor providing any security or goodwill for me, the consumer, who drives their business.
