I recognise the need for companies to defend their work but its easy to go too far, I think that putting install limits on software is going to far since it removes ownership of the game and makes it more like renting a piece of software and such protection should be clearly marked and there should be some consumer protection if the drm method used conflicts with computer hardware preventing paying customers from using it. oh and any warning about drm on the box should be more descriptive then just "this game contains technology intended to prevent copying that may conflict with some disk and virtual drives"
