@firstname.lastname@example.org I don’t disagree… It’s like the difference on owning a house vs renting, and basically renting anything where you can get kicked out almost in any moment. it depends on the contract you are signing.
That said, you can own DRM-free content, being hosted in a marketplace, or saved on your devices.
DRM is a long topic for a twt, but as a creator I don’t want my content to be pirated that much, at least not being extremely easy to pirate making the people prefer one click for a free download vs paying, let’s say, 2 dollars.
I don’t know about the marketplaces you mentioned, only GOG and Humble Bundle for games, and some others for games. I’ll take a look, that’s for sharing!
