You forget the most important thing in any business regardless of sector: customers.
Give them what they want (regardless of how silly or selfish the demand) or they will go elsewhere.
With digital content there is another factor to consider. If I feel slighted by a company that I give money to, why would I give them any more when any torrent site can give me a better product, faster, and for free?
Seems that you are the one with the entitlement issues. Customers don't owe you a salary, they don't owe you anything. It is up to you to prove that you are worthy of your salary by making the customer feel good about giving it to you.
Wow...You're complaining about entitlement issues? You're the one advocating stealing a company's product because you feel slighted by them trying to cover the ever-increasing costs of making all that content for their customers. And you wonder why companies are resorting to horrible DRM and day-1 DLC? Just look in the mirror for the real reason companies are reacting this way.
You're right, this isn't hacking. A real hacker would make all the traffic lights spell "L-o-n-d-o-n-2-0-1-2" in binary lights along every street for some extra subliminal persuasion of the committee and might leave the traffic control system with a better-tuned congestion-control based on Nagle 's algorithm.
As opposed to an Anonymous "hacker," who would just execute a denial-of-service attack on the traffic lights along the committee's route by re-routing a bunch of extra traffic to cause extra congestion and thereby accomplishing no substantial change from normal.
Yes, I just went to the true heart of any Slashdot article: what a "real" hacker is.
