My conclusion from these facts is that Goo (like any other DRM) is designed to restrict a users rights he otherwise enjoys, thereby stamping Stardocks own brand of copyright. The lack of forthcoming technical information to dispell any doubts about the best intentions of Stardock shows a vote of distrust towards the consumer.
If I was Brad I'd probably say that if you're cheering on (Goo) you're a fanboy,...
I'll be blunt;
Brand of copyrights is on everything by law & intent. It must be distributed by whomever, for whatever reasons as to make it obvious for the consumer to obtain further support. It's good practice, business wise, to identify the manufacturer. That's not a restriction, it's an advantage to both sides of the usual consuming equation. It works, it's obvious.
Why do you care if THEY don't want to reveal some sensitive technicalities about their products?
You want the source code so you can crack it and use it to circumvent the situation of (as you define it, anti-consumers in fact, btw) a company that owns these copyrights?
Who knows - i might be interested in the solid features that fit my consuming needs, but calling anyone who does a "fanboy" illustrates how far deep into provocation & lack of perception over this specific issue you are, have been and continue to be unless you simply admit being (somehow) wrong by proof exposed by others.
This conversation is coming dangerously close to become silly, pickery and pointless. Your argumentative isn't bringing anything to the table, you're quoting Brad just to contradict without READING what others have tried to explain since the very first post of this thread. I can read ya know - even pages worth of repetitive subjective *incohesive* direct attacks to StarDock just for the sake of *flaming* (gee, i'm caught in your trap). Should i repeat myself twice as much? No, cuz you have yet to demonstrate (to me, in particular) you deserve it.
I'll presume you have some excuses to make (AND, not necessarily to me only) otherwise i will ignore you since i've much better things to do in life than listening to a TROLL.
