Default EA Hit with Lawsuit

Electronic Arts is being sued because they failed to mention to consumers that when they installed Spore, that a stand alone program called SecuROM is also installed and is impossible to remove from a computers system, even after Spore is uninstalled. The program is used for copyright protection of the game, however it becomes a permanent part of the computers software portfolio.

Too bad everyone knew that it had DRM since it leaked out 6 months before the game came out.

If people stopped torrenting PC games they wouldn't have to install fucking spyware on your pc

But yeah lets just sue everyone

What's DRM, anyway?

I'm against a company placing spyware or any security software that can't be removed, but maybe if piracy was not such a big issue, EA and other publishers wouldn't need to add that stuff into their software.

They can do anything with their software but they can't just mess around with people's personal stuff and there's a reason it's called a PC. It's personal.

...and besides, most people who are into piracy can get around this spore thing easy.
