How would you feel about very light DRM in a game?

    The desktop version of my game, will have very light DRM. It's a separate download for the full version, which works perfectly fine; however, to gain access to the online leader-board system, you'll need to enter the Email address which was used to buy the game (or, you can choose not to, and play the game without the leader-boards).

    How would you feel about that?

    Seems reasonable as it isn't strictly DRM. Its an extra service that you want to restrict to registered users.

    You would have to question anybody who did have a problem with that.

    No problems with that. It's the DRM that treats legitimate users like criminals by making them jump through hoops that I have a problem with.
