I'm not saying it's right, but the PDFs on the filesharing sites had to come from somewhere. Realistically, WoTC would be stuck between a rock and a hard place. DRM didn't work for the PDFs, so they had to remove it...and then a small number of people who paid for the product decided to give it away for free, and now the PDFs are everywhere. WoTC only did what my wife and I do to our kids - if someone doesn't fess up to something, they all get punished.If so, it's a pretty crappy way of doing it. If this is carried through, people who have paid money for p[roducts will not be allowed to get the full use out of their products-- in the worst case, say someone who bought and didn't DL immediately, they'll get NO use out of those products.
1. that might be illegal. don't know about that, but I can see civil suits.
2. It'll show up on the top ten list of "why piracy isn't bad" under: Well they screw US.
