For context, I want to run a small personal gig (offering stuff on Patreon). Nothing too fancy.

In order to do that, I would need to use the Adobe suite, Windows, some audio and video effects, all requiring a commercial license.

In theory, I start to make money. How would Microsoft and Adobe know that I don’t pay for their software?

If I use some audio effects, how would their owners even be able to tell / find my work? We’re talking about basic sound effect, like rain, door knocks etc.

I’ve always been confused by this

    That’s so much intelligent programming

      Intelligent programming that makes the user’s experience worse

        It’s still pretty cool though. Especially DRM like denuvo, it’s pretty amazing how the DRM can scramble stuff and unscramble it and how it has multiple redundant ways to detect if it’s working correctly or not.

        It’s even crazier how some people can remove it.

        Denuvo absolutely worsens the UX though. Not sure if the Autodesk thing would worsen it though. Doesn’t sound like it.
