    Get It Right, get a DRM version that can only be played on a few devices for a year before it expires.
    Get It Right, with bundled menus, adverts, copyright notices, and other forced content.
    Get It Right, with poorly written launchers, DRM apps and other vulnerability promoting materials.
    Get It Right, with clunky boxes that you have to store somewhere.
    Get It Right, with on-demand that expires a week after broadcast - or 1 day before you got round to catching up.
    Get It Right, with adverts that are compressed to buggery and wake the household up with a bad cut.
    Get It Right, with advert messages overlaying your TV episode.

    As usual... rather than fix the problems they go after the only option available that people have been forced to go to in a lot of cases....

    So true - As someone who makes a big effort not to pirate its damn frustrating. I have friends who do pirate - straight to TV 4K streaming using Kodi and I'm stuck with low quality painful services (Chromecast does not support Amazon Prime, Fire Stick does not support Google Play Movies - Ahhhh!!!!). So far the only DRM I've felt work is Steam but only because its unobtrusive, cheap and it just works but then you find some Ubisoft title that needs uplay!!!!!!!!!

    If the government had any good sense at all it'd tell content creators to dry their crocodile tears and innovate and give consumers what they want.

    Re: Suspected pirates to get emails from ISPs later this month

    As above, but I doubt hardcore pirates would be scared away by an "email of alternate recommendations" - it is just going to highlight to them that they need better security.

    Amen brother!

    Adverts, on a paid-for service, are only going to drive people to use Pirated versions, for free.

    Forgot that one (I wonder why that hasn't impacted me that much ), but yeah, very important. And I guess related, Get It Right, wait a week after your American friends have already seen the episode and told you who dies.

    Exactly. I once had to import a Wallace & Gromit DVD from the USA because the BBC release wasn't until THREE years later!

    I might do similar this year, as "The Expanse" is NOT available on Bluray OR DVD in the UK!

    But it will scare away (or actually punish) all the little people who just download a few things here and there, which then removes the vast majority of those who support the pirate's activities in the first place...

    Maybe if they spent that time and effort making a decent film instead, people would be more inclined to pay the insanely high prices for a cinema ticket?

    OK so I don't really have any experience with DRM, so why is it generally hated? Is it mainly the fact that you're severely limited in where you can use the program/game?
