Join us in the fight against the use of DRM in the game Risen, by Piranha Bytes and Deep Silver sign now

My fellow gamers, I am sad to inform you that it has been confirmed that the upcoming RPG from Piranha Bytes will be delivered with a DRM system. This is basically a very intrusive method of protection that has been openly criticized by customers of the games that were using such protection

More about DRM here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_rights_management
Myths about DRM, why it is bad: http://geocities.com/foobar_77/drm-myths.html
Some thoughts about copy protection: http://geocities.com/foobar_77/thoughts-on-cp.html

This petition is not in favor of the game not having a copy protection, but against DRM specifically.

By signing this you join our protest against this abusive method and state that there is a big chance that you will not buy the game if it is going to be used.

    Any DRM other than serial-keys will ward away potential customers. Stardock really rakes in the money without DRM. You should reach for the respect of the customer by supporting your product (patching, addons, maybe even expansions) and the product's comm
