Re: So, streaming okay, downloading and saving whole file not...
I'm trying to reconcile your logic of calling those of us that buy digital property (ie. iTunes music, Steam games, etc.) "pirates" because we're not happy about the exact rules surrounding ownership of what was purchased.
But then I realized that logic does not apply as far as you are concerned; and then it all made sense!
I was too busy playing Steam games I bought on the sale this week to make any funny comments. However, I did make sure to do thorough research and avoid as many games as possible with DRM, just on a matter of principle. Because stuff like that doesn't deserve my time at any price. I rather spend my hard earned money on other developers who don't try to activation limit or SecuROM the piss out of their offerings.
And no, I'm not going to pirate them, either. I'm just not going to play them. Hey, what's that sound? Oh, it's the sound of DRM causing a developer to miss out on money and me to miss out on some culture (for the more popular games, anyway). Oh well, maybe I can stuff it in the pockets of some indie developers. Just like Binding of Isaac was a great choice last go round.
