I totally agree with you. However, I too have a recording studio and use a variety of different software with different copy protection schemes. 99% of the times I have no problems. Once in a while I do, and I can live with it!

Why, because without proper copy protection, there will be fewer paying customers to pay for the developers’ wages, research and development costs, marketing costs, shipping costs, rent, and all the other expenses that a business has. The companies will have to charge more to recoup expenses, which will ultimately hurt the paying customers even more. It is just the unfortunate reality that we have to face.
