The very first "Micromachines" game (I bought is several years ago in an second hand shop) has a card with I think it was numbers on it.

Printed in black on black.
And you had to give in this code within the game.
That's an early form of DRM, too.

Or the first Blues Brothers jump & run game. It doesn't work if you don't have its disquette in its disquette drive. As a result, it won't work on modern systems without such a drive. Even worse : You just cannot copy the disk. I don't know what they did to it, but all programs I tried so far aren't able to copy it. Even within an virtual PC having an DOS operating system in it ( I tried it ! ) , the disc cannot be used as an disk image, because no program I know of is able to correctly make an image of this disk.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
