Simply enough, if we don't take a stand by voting with our wallets now, regardless of the games being cracked or not, then we can expect the drm to be adopted by more publshers and getting worse and worse. I won't compromise my hobby for that. And since I belong to some consumer organizations you can bet this is something that makes me emotionally involved.
Actually all it would take is someone having enough, getting lawyered up. Or sending them a bill because their product requires the use of the internet to 'always be on' thus eating into the marginally pitiful bandwidth cap. Probably be a good test case for Canada. I mean Bell sure thinks that the average person here only uses 15GB a month.

Problem is, gamers can't be bothered, either because they think they wouldn't win (the EA Spore class lawsuits shows the exact opposite) or they can't be bothered because they are unaware or just don't care enough to see their rights throtled. Hence the gaming industry becomes a festering ground of anti-consumer experiments.
