    I'd say it depends on what it does exactly. I remember that anti-cheat tool introduced by ESL ages ago that just scanned your hard drives and uploaded that information to the company behind that tool to make sure you don't have any cheat tools installed.
    Was fun watching ESL almost being beaten to death. :)

    And that's not adware for me by the way. ;)

    I hope that this move is the real reason why Blizzard cut it's ties with this "collective". DRM is not the way to go. Like others here, I also believe that DRM only pushes more people to pirate the games. It's going to be a biatch when these "authentication" servers are shut down by various companies and a legitimate game buyer can no longer install/play the game because there is no server to authenticate with.

    Change "herpes" to "AIDS" and you're getting there.
