Noliving: the end result is different. I take care of my CD or DVD, I never lose the software. I trust a company that has already proven to me twice personally that they are untrustworthy to ensure my use of the software... and I may never have it in the first place.
That is the reality.
If I take good care of my property I never have to "burn" a backup, either, so that's a moot point.
Your retaliation against Dreamingby's statement is also based on trusting an untrustworthy company that has no contractual obligation to do what they claim. Perhaps if Valve had a glowing record of respect for their customers your trust would be justified, but Valve has no such record.
