I don't have any problem with the DRM as long as it doesn't get in the way of how I use the product. With what DAZ sells and the fact you need to do modifications to pretty much all of it putting any kind of usable DRM on it is a tall order. My biggest worry is how it is going to change my workflow, I have my library arraigned by file folder not database, and how connect works will break that. For connect to work for me at all I'm going to have to see what it will take to do my organization in the database. As such there is going to be a "wait and see" aspect to it. The other thing that comes to mind is that in the current arrangement, DAZ provides the program for free, and sells the content. Which means for anything other than essential figures, you can circumvent their DRM by simply buying your content somewhere else. Here for example. I can't see how adding DRM is going to do anything but reduce sales because some people will absolutely refuse to deal with it. It will be an interesting experiment, I don't see where it can possibly work.
