The use of DRM in games, software, and musice are just downright silly. personally I dont want anyone to install anything extra on my pc without giving me consent if at all. DRM is easy to get around if you are a pirate, so all that DRM does is hurt the legal consumer not the people that DRM is designed to fight.. DRM is a big joke. Personally I mainly make a point to stay away from any software or company that uses it. There are other non-invasive ways to check legitimate copies.
