*The* DRM thread

Ouch, but who knows how far these lawsuits will actually get. DDRM is nasty, but the legality of it is another matter.

 

A shame it is not the British legal system. No legal agreement is binding - a EULA for example - if the terms are judged to have been unreasonable. The first of those two cases, as described, would almost certainly be upheld in favour of the plaintiff.

tarna's dead; processing... complete. Disappointed by Universe. RIP Hades/Sand/etc. Here's hoping your next alt has a harp.

Yeah, I think if EA got sued in some European countries, rather than in the U.S., it would be much more likely to lose. Alas, in Slovakia at least, people are very reluctant to initiate lawsuits.

Interesting take on DRM:

Sure, it's still limited installs. BUT, you can install on a bundle of different computers and play a LAN game with your friends for the next 24 hours! That's at least pretty fair since that's all Sacred is about anyhow.

Wait... They put SecuROM in to Spore Creature Creator? It was free to download. What the hell?

 

Yep, it had it - as do most, if not all, of their demos. :x

 

But that makes no sense. Why would something freely distributed have DRM in it?

King's Bounty demo also has StarForce.

 

! :lol: I guess I am lucky it didn't do anything to my computer!

 

Are you sure about this? The full English version of King's Bounty uses SecuROM, but without the limited installations and without the need for online activation, so it is only a disk-check (I know for sure - I bought the full game [bTW: It is excellent!]), but the Russian version does use Starforce (though the DRM has supposedly been completely removed in the latest patch).

I haven't played X3 yet, waiting for my Joystick to arrive. Thought that I would install the latest patch in the meantime. Guess what? It wants to install some crap called "tages" on my system :(

 

Maybe I should just stick with the unpatched version. Ah well, let's see when I finally do get to play it, how bad or good it is without the patch.

You can easily remove TAGES, just go to the main site and run the installer/uninstaller. This will remove the entire program from your PC -it's not SecuROM with it's permanent fixtures (However, you'll need a "fixed" .exe to play TAGES protected applications if you remove it).
