Last week we let you in on Bioware and EA's plans to place annoying copy protection on PC titles. The plan called for buyers of Mass Effect and Spore to submit to a check of the validity of their disc every ten days or so.

Today, both companies have changed their minds. When Mass Effect comes out on May 27th, it will be verified only when downloading new content, and Spore will require validation only on a patch or game content update. Both games will be playable without their disc in the drive.

Makes sense. Problem solved. Move along.
