Fair DRM should let the user install and play the game on any number of their own computers. For example, Steam does this. Software design shortcuts that invade the user's privacy of data outside the game, enforce arbitrary install limits, or cause the user's computer to malfunction like in some EA titles should not be considered fair DRM.
