Spore copyright control relaxed - DRM still sucks

by Volker Weber

Video game maker Electronic Arts has loosened copyright protection for the newest release of its game Spore. Released earlier in the month, the game received a flurry of complaints about a restriction that meant the game could only be registered to three computers.

That restriction has now been raised to five computers, which the company says should account for all legitimate uses.

DRM does not taste better in smaller doses.

Repeat after me: DRM is bad for the customer.
