Lawyer files class action lawsuit over Spore DRM

This could be an important lawsuit. Kotaku is reporting that California attorney Alan Himmelfarb filed a class action law suit over the Spore DRM. The filings can be read here.

I really don't understand why content companies like EA and Sony feel entitled to take control over their customer's computers without fully disclosing their intent upfront. DRM does not need to be secretive, actually it's better for everyone if it is transparent.

Maybe I'm still bitter about NCAA Football 2009 being a horrible game, but I'd like to see EA made into an example.
