[QUOTE=TRA;4201507]I'm very anti-piracy, but I get very frustrated with some of the anti-piracy protections that have negative impacts on legit users, but they don't circumvent piracy. Can I get some opinions from the anti-piracy folks on this?

The truth is that software protection is both necessary and annoying. I have a recording studio myself and as an end-user of music software, I do get frustrated with copy protection from time to time. I also get annoyed when I have to unlock two locks and disarm my security alarm before entering my house.

However, I also understand that copy protection is needed in order to protect someone’s property, just like a lock on my front door protects my property.

It is unfortunate that legitimate users like you and I are inconvenienced by such protection.
