firstly i wud like to say i understand why it was made but everyone i know dislike like it and state if it carrys on the ways its going they will be forced to join the pirates e.g. with microsoft a number of the them have purchased vista but because of drm it can be only used once , microsft office 3 tmes and this is a major problem as a number of us have a pc and 1-2 laptops for the kids to do their work on and withkids every one nows that they go on dodgy websites and cotract viruses which leads to the computers being needed to be reformated and when this is done ooops u cant use ur version of vista which u have legitametly bought due to drm its now worthless. evry one saw`what happed with spore ea wanted to cotrol how u play sorry but a friedn of mine is a pc gamer on world of wacraft and he has that installed on 2 pcs 3 laptops and my pc so he can play where ever he wants . the consumers already tought ea a lesson by downloading it with out drm 1.7 million times !!!! basically the these organisations want to control how you use your legitimatley bought media like a robot but what they dont know is if the consumers dont buy their software what will happen to them and they wont be nothing without the consumers.
