DRM in games does absolutely nothing to stop software pirates, and only hurts legitimate users. A while ago I bought Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, and discovered their particular brand of DRM didn't play nicely with the dvd drive model that I had, and wouldn't launch. After wasting an hour searching online for a solution, I ended up installing the pirated version of the game. Just ridiculous.
