I Personally think that DRM punishes the legitimate customers more then the pirates. Games are usually cracked by these "scene" groups a few days to a weak after the game has been released giving these pirates a DRM free copy where as the loyal customers who actually purchased the game have to deal with headaches of annoying and possibly harmful 3rd party software, online activations and limited installs. If I pay for a game shouldn't I have the right to install it as many times as I want and not have to connect to the web to tell the company i want to play. Whats next, am I going to buy a dvd and be told I can only watch it X number of times and only on one dvd player after i call the company and get an activation number?
