Honestly, I felt that the compromise of activation codes was pretty fair. I.E. you can purchase a used game, but unless you get valid activation code for it, you don't get access to the online features, updates, content and support. You still get the core game, which you paid for, but the publishers don't have to spend their resources supporting a player who has removed them from the compensation process.
