How about no protection. Crackers generaly get a kick out of breaking them and that actualy speeds up the illegal distribution.
Steam didn't stop hl2's rabid pirating, programs like Daemon tools can actualy emulate some protection methoods and even I know how to eliminate starforce from my system. Point is, you can't stop piracy, and even if you did, it would not ad sales.
I'm sorry if my rant sounds harsh, but I'm sick and tired of cleaning my regestry of dead protection files or re-instaling certain drivers because certain programs changed them. (I even had to re-install windows the other day because of a program that delated a certain file necisary for the windows validation tool to deam my perfectly legal copy valid).
We are all made of stardust, the building block of the stars.
And I think the time has come to shine like the suns we are and play online for fun.
