FTC Town Hall to Address Digital Rights Management Technologies - Event Takes Place Wednesday, March 25, 2009, in Seattle

I am an avid Sims2 player who is very upset about SecuRom being placed on my computer without my knowledge. My computer was damaged to the point of having to be replaced. My CD/DVD drive failed to respond, it attacked my virus scan program and made my Windows XP inoperable. Even though I removed it from the machine per their instructions, the damage was already done. I have spent a great deal of money on EA games and I think it is an outrage that they have caused so many problems for their loyal fans. I will never install a game containing SecuRom on my new computer.
