Implementing any anti-piracy measures is basically saying that pirates are more important to you than your actual, paying customers.

If I were about to release a mainstream PC / XBox / PS3 {&c.|et cetera} game, then I would upload the torrent myself to piratebay so that I knew pirates would at least be getting a decent rip that was virus free. All I would include with the game is an “.NFO” file (with ANSI art, no less) with a Pay Pal e-mail address where people could make a voluntary donation.

I think this idea would actually make money, and boost retail sales.
