I really, really, really hate DRM. My new audio package arrived a few days ago. I had trouble installing it because it "suggested" I disable UAC in Windows 7, but didn't really bother because it seemed like it was one of those requests you can ignore, like closing all applications, disabling virus scanner, etc. Every time I've encountered "over-cautious" requests like that I've ignored them and was fine. But this time its "suggestion" turned out to be a "requirement" as it installed fine after I disabled UAC. But then it came time to install and activate the iLok security dongle (which, incidentally, I had to pay extra for in order to use the software). This thing is longer than most of my USB keys and shaped like a damn teapot, so it isn't like it sits there inconspicuously; it juts out of my case like a tumor. So its driver software is supposed to install drivers, plus plugins and ActiveX controls for Firefox and IE. Drivers appeared to install fine. But the website that activates the plugin that allows me to add and manage the software licenses won't activate, not in Firefox, not in IE. Not at all. I can't do a damn thing with this new audio package until I can get my iLok added and activated on the web. So I'm sitting here waiting for a support ticket to get answered. I HATE DRM. Honestly, this package is just about 50 gigs when fully installed; I had to clear an entire spare partition just to install it. (I have two sitting around doing nothing so that wasn't an issue.) Who the hell do they expect to pirate a package of this size? And why would they think such people would buy it if they couldn't find it? This thing is beyond massive. Even over a fast connection it would take bloody forever to torrent. Grrr. This is frustrating and stupid.
