I read your article about How software companies are planning to combat piracy by allowing users to rent software and access it via the internet.
What a stupid idea. Are we all to be forced into having an internet connection? What about when you have a project deadline and your web connection goes down? This could never work.
What about plugins, I use many on Photoshop but other users use none, most plugins are third party so do I need to subscribe to a bunch of other sites?
If software compnies are serious about beating piracy, the answer is simple.
LOWER YOUR PRICES.
