We like investments in Bitcoin, in fact we embrace it as it’s our sole income here at AdaptiveGlass. However some VC money is going to areas of Bitcoin investments that we are not that happy about.

We heard it on Good Authority (from the CEO of the DRM bitcoin startup) that at least 5 game makers, including LucasArts and EA are or at least were prior to the SimCity launch intending to fund his Video Game DRM company based on Bitcoin Technology.

You're simply stating an anarchist posture. I have no problem with bitcoin being used for DRM. So be it if people gets to know bitcoin

Let them dig their own graves. The problem, if any, lies with the consumers who fund this.

Wait, people play games from EA still?

But seriously, nothing you can do about it.  Even if they, for some reason, use BTC itself it doesn't matter really.  Bitcoin is bitcoin and can be used by anyone anywhere for whatever reason.  

The best thing you can do is not play crappy games.  There's tons of games out there that are much much better.  Even if you find a way to "pirate" these games, you're only part of the problem as it encourages the bastards to make more crappy games.

The idea itself is kinda flawed (just patch out the part that sends the DRMcoins - and if they use BTC good luck in getting your money stolen!) and I really don't appreciate the tone of your heading.

Meh. As much as I deplore DRM in all its forms, Bitcoin needs to be a neutral currency (usable for any purpose). If people want to spend their hard-earned money on that garbage, let them.

You're simply stating an anarchist posture.

One of those words has been used incorrectly. It starts with an "a" and it isn't "an".

If someone wants to create DRM heavy products, that is perfectly acceptable in anarchy.

DRM implies control, the OP doesn't want control. His position is anarchist, your view is correct. People can do whatever the hell they want with bitcoin since there's no central control.
The very title of this thread is fundamentally wrong since I didn't read anything in satoshi's paper stating that bitcoin couldn't be used for this or that...
let's close the thread.

Nothing in your car manual states that you shouldn't plow pedestrians over driving down the street.   Since it's not in the manual it shouldn't be a worry right?

I'm sure there's SOMETHING that alludes to avoiding hitting people...

What specifically do you propose you can and are going to do about it?  (Besides posting in a forum)

Our family was terrorized by Homeland Security.  Read all about it here:  http://www.jmwagner.com/ and http://www.burtw.com/  Any donations to help us recover from the $300,000 in legal fees and forced donations to the Federal Asset Forfeiture slush fund are greatly appreciated!

You are correct, you can plow pedestrians over with your car as there's nothing in the manual that prevents you, and you can even hit 200mph with it if you want and if the car can go that fast. The U.S. laws (and other laws in other countries) will take care of you.
In bitcoin there's no law for its use. Your analogy is incorrect.

I think where you went wrong then is not so much telling people what you hear, but telling them and then trying to force an incorrect and hyperbolic conclusion onto them.

The article is pure sensationalist tripe, there's no evidence or any information to back up these ridiculous claims.

Please go away.
