I really don't understand your point.

But really, all you need to worry about is 1) thinking of a good idea and then 2) writing good code.

If you write good code but it's a crap idea (eg too expensive to build or too much competition on the market) then you wont be able to sell for a price that made your time worthwhile. And if you have a good idea but write crap code then your product wouldn't be worth much money either.

It's the same with any business, it's all well and good saying that "product x costs $2000 to manufacturer", but if it's not worth that much then people aren't going to pay. So you either have to sell for a loss but get sales (terrible business plan) or stick to your $2000 price tag but have copycats come in and build cheaper clones that retail at a fraction of the price. Either way, you lose money.

In fact this is what the whole of the creative and digital industries should be thinking about rather than moaning that people are "stealing" their products. If they can't sell a product at a price that people want to pay, then either their product is too expensive to bring to market or it's not possible to make a business out of that particular product. In either case, their business model is broken.

Pretty much ^

As for DRM, pretty much the system I use is very simple - a back end database and web service that registers license keys and other metadata. Sometimes that service runs on premises, sometimes it talks over the Internet, it depends on the requirements.

The software on the client simply talks to the web service and verifies the product is activated. People who want to buy it will buy it - the "DRM" system is in place simply to "stop" people who've *already* bought X amount of licenses using more than they've been allotted (per CPU, per user or whatever I decide is respectable for the software).

If people want to remove that component from my programs (including those who've already paid for it) or patch around it, well, I simply don't care. I know how to stop most of it from being done, but I don't bother because I'd rather focus on writing good software instead of trying to "protect" my software and spending a truck load of time developing a *hopefully* fool-proof DRM system.
