Default Re: Insane PC Game DRM Drove Me To Piracy

I think he was right for what he did. He paid for it, can't play it, got no help from the people he purchased it from. I know of a similar story.

A friend of a friend purchased MS Office, (1998 I think) installed it and a few days later they came out with a new version. He called MS and asked if he could be upgraded to the new Office program and they told him no, if you want the new office you half to pay for it. He said they were rude and completely unwilling to help in any way. So he just went to a torrent site and downloaded the new Office program. From my understanding he still does this today. Personally I use Open Office and would never pay for (or steal) MS Office.
