I feel that only letting a few computers run a program quite restricting. I have 3 computers that are used amongst the people I live with, and that can take up most of my DRM right there. This isn't the biggest problem I have with DRM though, I feel that this is an attempt to stop the used video game industry. Right now DRM is only used on PC games but with all the newer consoles being on line, I am sure it won't be long before all games will have this. EA has made plenty of money and bought up lots of smaller software companies, they don't need a choke hold on the whole industry past and present.
