And then what if 1 of my kidz want to borrow the ORIGINAL to use on their comp, because they certainly are not gonna use my comp.
No software EULA can say licenced for 1 person 1 comp, for the life of that comp ONLY, not ONE component change. next it will be DRM injections @ birth not paid cant see the movie/ listen to the music, play the game.
This is taking intelectual ownership to the extreme where you cannot even share ORIGINALS within your own household. and no its not illegal, 1 ORIGINAL = 1 PLAYER even if you got 20 kids in your house each with a comp. On top of that its more loss to software authors, In the past you could go to a friends with an ORIGINAL and show him/her the game, have some fun and they may well pop out and buy it that week. BIggest advertising is word of mouth, it can make a company and break a company and has 1000s X's more power than tv or internet adds.
Any game in the future protected to such an extent can Kiss it, It will be returned.
