DRM is like a bad joke: Generally, the only person laughing about it is the one who let it loose in the first place. Every once in a while, though, somebody hits the nail on the head, and we all get to fuel our mirth with some clueless pirate's enraged tears. Does that make us bad people? Maybe, but still: Hahahahaha. Ahem. So anyway, Bohemia Interactive recently bagged itself a big one using a copy protection scheme called FADE. How's it work? Well...
Libyan dictator Col. Gaddafi doesn’t have the best reputation in the Western media circles, even before the current bloody rebellion surged through the country. He’s known to have funded militant and terrorist organizations around the globe; a recent documentary by ITV, one of the top television stations in the U.K., clearly showed video of Irish IRA militants shooting down a British helicopter with Libyan weaponry in 1988. Except, um, the supposedly “real” footage was actually a user clip from ArmA 2. Oops!
