Spore’s DRM is Unevolved
Spore, one of the most anticipated games to come out recently, now has a new following of hate growing around the way the game implements DRM. Digital Right Management is on just about every piece of software in one way or another, but the methods Spore is using is a bit overstepping the boundaries. The DRM on Spore is provided by securom. Securom is sometimes referred to as malware or a virus in that it installs itself to your computer and modifies the CD-ROM’s q-channel in order to make a protected original distinguishable from a copy.
