BioWare technical producer Derek French has said that the PC versions of both Mass Effect and Spore will make use of copy protection that will require online validation every ten days to continue working.

If customers do not come online after ten days, the game will cease to function. "After 10 days a re-check is required before the game can run"

The Spore Creature Creator gives anxious life-builders the chance to prematurely access the game's robust creature creation element; players will be able to build any creature they can imagine with the full lot of options. Created creatures can then be imported into the full game when it is released later this year.

If you're megalomaniacal but also too cheap to spring the $9.99 for the game, you'll be happy to hear that a free demo will also arrive that day on the Spore site.
