On my other computer Securom has prevented me from using CD burning programs. Thus resulting in not being able to back up my music files. Securom also seemed to slow the computer down. The worst thing is that securom on Spore limits the amount of times one can install the game. This is like limiting the amount of times one can wash their hair with shampoo. When someone purchases something they should be allowed to do whatever they want with it. It is fine to limit the amount of computers it is on but the amount of times its installed on the same computer is ridiculous.
