Speaking to Gamasutra, EA’s said that Spore’s DRM system is essentially the same as the disc-and-key method used in previous games.
“EA has not changed our basic DRM copy protection system,” said EA’s corporate communications boss, Mariam Sughayer.
“We simply changed the copy protection method from using the physical media, which requires authentication every time you play the game by requiring a disc in the drive, to one which uses a one-time online authentication.”

EA would “strongly prefer” if Jack Thompson had nothing to do with its dealings with Take-Two. The anti-game lawyer had previously offered to lend a helping hand to the gaming giant in its efforts to take control of Take-Two, primarily as a way of taking out Jack’s nemesis and GTA publisher, Strauss Zelnick. No thanks, said EA.
We have received your letter to EA’s shareholder site. In response to your offer to assist in the proposed acquisition of Take-Two, we would strongly prefer that you not get involved in this matter. EA is a strong supporter of creative freedom for game developers. We feel that your past statements – including false claims about content in our games – make any collaboration with you impossible.

Consider yourself told, Jack. By the way, next time we’re in the US or you’re in the UK, do you mind if we take your portrait? All the shots of you on the web are rubbish.
