FTC Town Hall to Address Digital Rights Management Technologies - Event Takes Place Wednesday, March 25, 2009, in Seattle
How you can see, I'm not fron an English -speaking country, so I first ask to forgive me for my bad English. Adout DRM I say it's reasonable for SH, but even for musicians and other artists, to protect their products from illegal copying: They do what they do (games, Music, films, etc) to gain something from theyr products, and they also bet often a lot of money on it. So I think there's no problem on it. I have to admit that I live in a society who celebrates Illegal copying as a model (Italians are masters on it, It's not a coincidence that Berlusconi is our Government Chies...), Talking about videogames, 10 players on the same game match with only one license of use (when luicky). But at the meantime i think that SH should give some real advantages to legal users if they want to try to contain illegal copying. Some of the DRM actually in some top rated games (Crysis, spore...) turn often to impossible the life of legal players and customers. It's a customer's right to use it's license until it wants: the limits of activations are fool in my opinion. I recently bought Crysis on steam: they say i have 4 activations left: it's not right. Do you really think I will buy again Crysis to gain others activations?
