I get that the DRM-is-stoopid mentality is popular here on slashdot, and as such is a great way to ramp up the karma, but the way you always derail every piracy related topic into how YOU, the tiny minority are affected is getting really old.
What a load of shit. It's been proven time and again that "we" will not pay for anything we don't have to..
You might stand on principle against DRM, or only use piracy as a means of evaluating a product before playing blind date with fifty bucks, but you're in a very, very small minority.
