Yes.

Are the piraters completely unjustified?

No.

Are we going to accomplish anything by letting this DRM stand?

No.

Are we going to accomplish anything by pirating the game?

Maybe. In a more civil time a boycott would be the better solution; but let's face it - that's not going to work. I think a massive pirating protest should be the last thing we should resort to in protest.

Consumers can make a difference. They did with Mass Effect's DRM, and I hope they can do it again. I just hope it doesn't get this far.

The news reports about Spore get dumber and dumber. Should you pirate Spore because you don't like the copy protection ? well obviously not duhhhh. If you are unhappy with the games DRM simply do not purchase it and do not pirate it. You will not DIE if you don't play Spore, your wife and children will not leave you if you don't play Spore.

The most effective way to get the message across is to totally leave the game alone. If you buy this game you are contributing to draconian DRM and if you pirate this game you are contributing to draconian DRM. Just stay away from the game, if enough people ignore it then maybe EA might wise up.

I would rather play a game than prove a point.

FIGHT THE POWER

F**K EA

The right thing to do is to leave it on the store shelf.

Pirating the game will only expand upon the problem.

If you don't like the DRM used in the game, then ignore the game.
