Penguino, you are able to get around it.

Wearing out a cd drive a little is hardly spitting in someones face.

It sounds like you're waiting to buy a used copy, how many copies of that cd key do you think could be sold, if it's just the key/license number being mailed around? Keys do help keep honest people honest. It's very easy to try a game at friends house, and then not uninstall it immediately, and such a shame not to play until <whatever>...
