more info for you guys

[08:49] <Karusune> DRM is a way to prevent people from pirating software.
[08:49] <Karusune> However, most DRM actually limits the people who purchase the game and actually use it legally.
[08:50] <Edwurdo> Ah, explains the F rank then
[08:50] <Karusune> If you purchase and install Spore, it installs Securom which is a highly hated DRM.
[08:50] <Karusune> Securom integrates into Windows.
[08:50] <Karusune> You cannot install it.
[08:50] <Karusune> You cannot remove it.
[08:50] <Karusune> You have to do a complete reinstall of Windows to remove it.
[08:50] <Karusune> Also:
[08:50] <Karusune> Spore can only be installed 3 times.
[08:51] <Karusune> If you have problems with your computer (most people), you're renting the game.
[08:51] <Karusune> You didn't purchase it.
[08:51] <Karusune> You rented it.
[08:51] <Karusune> It's the worst possible scenario for a video game release.
[08:52] <Edwurdo> So something that had the potenial to be a brilliant game that people might play for months to come, instead became a train wreck because the developers tried to hard to stop something that will never stop
[08:53] <Karusune> Exactly.
[08:53] <Karusune> I know for a fact that it isn't selling well.
[08:53] <Karusune> I work in the Electronic department at Wal-Mart:
[08:53] <Karusune> We are overstocked.
[08:53] <Karusune> They sent us many copies, and apparently yesterday we sold 2.
[08:53] <Karusune> ...out of 150.

The point he's making, DarkAndroid, is that due to the fact that you are not in control of the product you install in addition to the fact that you can only install it up to 3 times on different hardware(a hardware upgrade and OS upgrade count as "different hardware" in SecuROM) means that you might as well have rented the game, since it treats the legitimate customer as if he didn't own the copy.
