Just today I had to "fix" legit software my sister bought. The computer got formatted and the software refused to install again even though they allow 2 licenses. 3 calls to the company never got it resolved even though they claimed they were fixing it so she could install the software again.
I would like to see statistics for how many times that happens.
All it ends up doing is infuriating the consumer that bought the product. NONE of their DRM or copy protection stops the people who want to get around it.
