QA has more than enough to do for us as is without having to check some list about final packaging and placement for download of the product. It would also be very confusing for customers. Then DAZ is going to lose some PA's since some have expressed the opinion on the Message boards that they do not want their product encrypted. Which is what is the problem with the way DAZ is going about it, some people just will not tolerate encrypted content on general principle. So the question is, will the customers they lose through encryption be offset by incoming new customers from the warez sites? Survey says... never happened in the past for entertainment software. That's why companies moved away from it. It's not that DRM can't work, it's just that it never generates increased sales. Or does anybody have something that shows that isn't true? The only times I know of that DRM has increased sales is if the software is used by businesses that can be sued if caught using unlicensed versions. You can't increase sales by inconveniencing your customers.
