It's a barbaric system and treats us customers like criminals. Just take a look at the Spore fiasco and how many negative reviews it received on amazon in just a few days. Originally Spore's DRM only allowed you to install it 3 times on any machine. How ever if you made any changes to that machine, like a hardware change it would be used up. In the end I paid 50 dollars just to rent a PC game? WTF. DRM fails in the end any ways. Spore was cracked and released to pirates a day before it came out any ways. So what can you conclude about DRM? 1. It treats customers like criminals and drives some to piracy 2. It is an epic fail and will always be bypassed, hacked and cracked in the end.
