"Insane PC Game DRM Drove Me To Piracy" is a bit of a misleading title (not TechSpot's fault - they're just posting it as is).

The guy bought a game, worked fine, but then his HD went belly-up. Replaced the HD and couldn't get the game to work due to DRM restrictions. Numerous calls to both publisher and MS Live with no results. Finally gave up and downloaded a pirated copy. So a consumer who has always purchased his games - and purchased this one - downloaded a cracked copy to make it run. I wouldn't consider that piracy, nor would I presume that piracy is all he is going to engage in from here on out as the title lends itself to.

Just sayin'...
