As if this couldn't have worked out better for those pining for a DRM future.
Are we licensing music? Truly? Then if I show that I bought this album in 1985 am I licensed to download the song?

I hope this struggle doesn't delve into "the content is bad." Major news organizations (insert film of exploding van here) will likely speak of the content of the site and skew people's opinion. The fact is that a provider is limiting access based on their ability to control said access.
Gah, this is pathetic. The inevitable antics from Anonymous won't help much either.
Game Devs Using One-Time Bonuses to Fight Used Game Sales
Apparently EA is allowing you to buy the content for $20 for NBA Live. This is a highly touted feature of the game and is most useful at the beginning of a season. If the original owner sells the game back to Gamestop soon after release, Gamestop is going to charge $54.99 for it. So the full version of the game is now $74.99.
What bothers me most about this is eBay sellers. These people can open boxes and take codes and sell the games as new. Additionally some poor sucker who buys a game from an eBay seller doesn't know if the codes truly used or not.
Pretty shitty out of EA, but it's been equally shitty out of Gamestop to run an unchecked pawn shop business for the last 5 years.
