Avault's Patrick Watts has a lock on the door to his house. If someone really wanted to get in, however, that lock wouldn’t necessarily stop them. They could shoot the door down with a missile launcher or even bypass it completely and break the window with a brick. He could worry about time traveling robot ninjas with energy swords that can cut through any material, but he doesn’t (mainly because he owns nothing of value). Most people would not buy a house or even rent an apartment that doesn’t have some form of lock on their door. People have the right to protect their property, and that includes video game companies.
