Wow. Just wow. I just had to share this one:
More and more, we're seeing that the pirated versions of products are better. This is sometimes because they involve actual improvements like Final Fantasy VII; Ultima Edition but often it's simply because they don't carry DRM technology and other unwanted locks, such as the "no skip" advertisements. Even Disney's "FastPlay" which supposedly "puts you in control of your viewing preferences" doesn't really compare to the total, immediate access to the content you actually wanted when you paid your money that a pirated version will provide. If it wasn't for such locks in the first place, technologies like FastPlay would not be needed. I think it inappropriate to even call it a technology - it's the option to partially disable an unwanted technology, which isn't a real innovation. The content industry, rather than adapting to new market conditions, has been trying to sell us bugs as features. I don't see how this can possibly succeed, simply from a practical standpoint.
