DRM itself is a good idea in terms of preventing piracy. This though makes keeping games such as Spore, Mass Effect, Halo 2 Vista, and other related games that have DRM hard especially if a user has to legitimately reinstall a game on a PC that was completely reformatted or gets a new PC altogether and that can prove to be very annoying in the long run, thus shortening the playability and the value greatly.
