A simple, obscure, unintrusive and low-tech copy protection (some metadata trick on a 'hidden' part of the disc) isn't going to hurt anyone.

As this is likely a digital download I don't think copy protection is gonna help, or is at all necessary any more.

Paying for the game actually gives you far more than pirating it.
Because of gog.com I've bought more games in the last 6 months than the last 6 years. A game developer can win sales by finding ways to give paying customers more than the pirates. Trying to prevent copying in a digital world is a fruitless exercise.
If anything games developers should be *using* bittorrent. If they get their version of the game on TPB on release day with an embedded flattr/donation link and a link to where to purchase it on the start screen then at least they gain advertising and potentially some money.
OilRush support OGL3/4? Great!
Will it support OGL3/4 on windows too? (what about winXP?)
Since OilRush mainly use DX9 level technologies, there will be no problem with windows XP.

And the answer would depend on what support NVidia and AMD provide there for OpenGL. Based on the statements on the current WHQL drivers for XP, the answer to their question would be "yes" so long as Unigine opts to allow the OpenGL backend to be on Windows as an option for the game.
