Tensions Rise Between Gamers and Game Companies Over DRM

Technology Review covers the intensifying struggle between gamers and publishers over intrusive DRM methods. From the article:
"Ultimately, Schober says, companies are moving toward a model where hackers wouldn't just have to break through protections on a game, they'd also have to crack company servers. The unfortunate consequence, he says, is that it's getting more difficult for legitimate gamers to use and keep the products they buy. But there are alternatives to DRM in the works as well. The IEEE Standards Association, which develops industry standards for a variety of technologies, is working to define 'digital personal property.' The goal, says Paul Sweazey, who heads the organization's working group, is to restore some of the qualities of physical property — making it possible to lend or resell digital property." (Assassin's Creed 2, Culture, Dev, Industry, PC, R.U.S.E., Tech, Ubisoft)
