Default Re: Never again will I buy DRM

Games that have limited activations only check this either during the actual install, or on the first time the game is run. The only reason it would thinki about reactivating it is if you formated windows, but not the game data.

I also don't belive you because games do not say "please uninstall this game" nore do they ask you to buy a new key, something you can't actually do.

And the majority of companies offer some way of contacting those in charge of the drm to ask for an extension or resetting of installations on a case by case bases. Most of these are never refused (unless the key has been attempted hundreds of times due to being leaked to the public), its just a pain in the ass to take the time out of your day to do so.
