On September 7, 2008 EA released Spore, which uses SecuROM. Despite EA's efforts, Spore has seen relatively substantial rates of illegal piracy among peer-to-peer groups, and with a reported 1.7 million downloads over BitTorrent networks, it was the most-pirated game of 2008. EA requires the player to authenticate the game online upon installation. This system was announced after the originally planned system met some opposition from the public, as it would have required authentication every ten days. The product key of an individual copy of the game would only be authenticated on up to three computers. In response to customer complaints, this limit was raised to five computers.
As a result of its inclusion with Spore, a class-action lawsuit was filed by Maryland resident Melissa Thomas within U.S. District Court against Electronic Arts. The lawsuit has been followed up by several others.for more info use this link:

To prevent piracy, EA has decided nobody in the entire world is allowed to own a legal copy of Spore.
I've decided to completely boycott EA.
