You know, the more I think about this, the more I realise Hugh Howey is absolutely right. As a creator, I feel (naturally) very protective over my work, and so the idea of it getting downloaded once and then copied and pasted and pirated is rather unappealing.
As a consumer, when I buy something, I want to be able to use it in whatever damn way I please. I mean, if I buy a Coke, I’d be pretty pissed if every time I tried to fill a glass, some guy with a clipboard came up and issued me with a penalty notice, big fat fine, and eventually five years in prison for not drinking it out of the can.
Basically what I’m saying is, my stuff’s going to be DRM free from now on. So enjoy it as you please.
OK, so you probably all smelled the sanctimonious man-of-the-people bullshit that was. Fact is, as the creator of Isaac Blaze—who, let me tell you, is a pirate—I’m not about to present myself as some pansy-ass word-peddler who’s afraid of a few naughty boys and girls.
Note from Isaac: Some of my favourite people are pirates.
