BioShock: Only Two Installs

How many installs do we get? Transfer of ownership? on the 2K Forums (thanks Greybird) outline an issue that's been discovered with the SecuROM online activation required to play BioShock. Apparently the process will only allow for the game to be installed twice, which could obviously be a problem for folks who experience problems with their systems. The Steam Forums indicate that this problem afflicts the Steam edition of the game as well.

I'm really not sure how many average gamers even know how to pirate a game. If you go to a site to download a crack for a new, highly popular game like this one (which I'm definitely going to be doing once I pick up this game), you see a ton of morons posting because they don't know how to make it work. (What's a rar file? I tried to burn the iso to a disc and now I have a disc with an iso file on it but it doesn't work! etc, etc.) I'm guessing they get frustrated and eventually just go buy it, or maybe they just give up and move on to something else.
