"Spore's cumbersome DRM (three installs per copy) has enraged much of the gaming lot, and some cite the restriction as a reason they might download a pirated copy of the game. Unrelated developer Positech recently asked gamers why they pirate games, and sure enough, restrictive DRM was among the biggest complaints. The others were fairly obvious: price, quality, convenience, and so on. The information is useful (and Positech has used the response to guide its policies), but I'd like to know how gamers feel about piracy.
Before I pose some questions, let's glance at what piracy is, and dispel one of the more cosmetic arguments so that we can directly assault the difficult stuff with our brain guns."
