Ubisoft shifts its digital rights management stance from stick to carrot

The French video game publisher Ubisoft hasn’t engendered a lot of goodwill with PC gamers over the years because of its aggressive digital rights management (DRM) policies. But the company made some big changes a year ago, and it wants gamers to understand that it is playing nicer these days. (Industry, PC, Tech, Ubisoft)

If the games was "supposedly" getting pirated 93-95% of time then the DRMs really wasn't helping them.

Ubisoft has released Anno 2070 since their supposed shift date and it has horrendous DRM.

Shifting from stupid DRM to saying 90% of your PC customers are criminals doesn't seem like a step in the right direction.

Ubisoft fooled me once, not happening again.
