Speaking purely about video games, which is the only form of multimedia I consume in any appreciable quantity, the requirements are as follows:
1. Treat me with respect.
That’s it. Here are some common business practices that flaunt a distributor’s lack of respect for me.
a. Too much DRM, and DRM that is so restrictive that it actually hinders the proper function of the product in a worst case scenario (see Uplay, Games For Windows Live).
b. Different release dates for different parts of the world.
c. Different prices for different parts of the world. Paying 200% just because I live in Australia is stupidity.
d. Unavailability of certain titles between countries.
I actually don’t pirate games, and haven’t since I got a job a couple of years ago (and even back then it was only abandonware), but I openly import games or exploit VPNs to obtain them earlier and at cheaper prices.
