+ - Bioshock DRM Causes Massive Outcry->

Dr Kool, PhD writes: "The PC DVD version of Bioshock is loaded with DRM like no other game ever released, and the outcry has reached critical mass. PC Gamer editors are reporting that they are not able to install and activate the game more than twice, even when previous copies are uninstalled. Thousands of complaints from frustrated buyers have flooded 2K Games' official Bioshock forum. The game uses a new version of the rootkit SecuROM to do its dirty deeds."

Qualcomm had sought $8.3 in damages for patent infringement stemming from Broadcom's H.264 encoder/decoder chips. This ruling clears the way for H.264 to become a widely adopted open standard."
