BioWare caves to pressure over Mass Effect copy-protection

How many people can I piss off by making a third thread about this? Hopefully a lot. BioWare have seen the light and caved in to peer-pressure over their proposed copy-protection shenanigans:
There has been a lot of discussion in the past few days on how the security requirements for Mass Effect for PC will work. BioWare, a division of EA, wants to let fans know that Mass Effect will not require 10- day periodic re-authentication.
The solution being implemented for Mass Effect for the PC changes copy protection from being key disc based, which requires authentication every time you play the game by requiring a disc in the drive, to a one time online authentication.
BioWare has always listened very closely to its fans and we made this decision to ensure we are delivering the best possible experience to them. To all the fans including our many friends in the armed services and internationally who expressed concerns that they would not be able re-authenticate as often as required, EA and BioWare want you to know that your feedback is important to us.
Thank the military. There's another 10 or so questions over there about it as well.
Thanks StarWars and cazsim83!
