Who said I was looking at it one-sidedly?

The benefit to the company is much greater than the 'loss' to the consumer. An extra ten or so dollars for each individual person to buy a game translates to millions of dollars for the company.

You're a fan of modern DRM? All it does is screw the legitimate buyer, since pirates will always have a way around it. Why do you think a lot DRM is removed in a post-release patch?

There's a reason why GOG is so successful.

Steam is more successful, and Steam is, gasp, DRM!

Yes, yes it is. I don't like Steam. Hate the way it updates. Bought Portal 2 at launch at retail, and when it wanted to give me another update it was trying to download the entire game again. Six gigs for an update is too much. It's my only Steam game and I don't like using it, so I may be doing something wrong.

But Steam is better than Ubisoft's old DRM or games with limited installs.
