Spore has been getting loads of flak for publishing a game using a copy protection method that only allows you to install it on 3 user accounts. They’ve since raised the amount to 5, and say that you should be able to install it on more PCs if you give them a call.
Wall Mart is taking down their DRM servers. This means all music purchased legally from Wall Mart can no longer be played. Wall Mart is now reccomending people break their DRM if they want to keep their music!
This is why copy protection schemes such as Electronic Arts’ Spore are unnaceptable. Servers do go down. And then suddenly you can’t play your game any more at all!
