ALEX: I’m sorry, but setting the clock on your computer back two months in order to fool the DRM software into thinking the installation grace period has not expired would be a violation of the DMCA. The only legal method of getting around the DRM software is to purchase our re-activation key.

CUSTOMER: So the only way I have of installing this program, which I bought legally and haven’t had the chance to USE yet, is to pay another thirty bucks for some stupid program that fixes a problem I could fix myself, but am barred from doing so by law?

ALEX: Essentially, yes.

CUSTOMER: How convenient for you.

ALEX: Essentially, yes.
