Talk about irony...
Hmm...does the DRM law even apply to them in this case? They are the owners of the original content, surely they can obtain the audio in any way they want.
I think the law still applies, but it's up to Ubisoft to take action..... against itself. But that's my extremely (read: very) limited law knowledge. It's moreso a guess, really.
what?! I mean wasnt this not allowed?
I know right???
This reminds me of when Capcom took the IGN Okami image and used it for the retail cover art. Amazing.
Why is this surprising? A developer puts on DRM software to protect their investment and prevent money loss. Pirating obviously has many advantages and very few disadvantages. Ubisoft is not anti-piracy, it's anti-loss of investment
That's one of an Epic Fail.
If they developed the game how do they not have the music track files laying around on the servers? That would be far better quality than any MP3 file they downloaded. Just goes to show that poor organization leads to piracy...or maybe everything is just easier when its pirated.
I'm a bit confused on how this even happened. How is it someone got the soundtrack to even put up on the internet before the official soundtrack was released?
cool, now i feel less guilty about pirating ubisoft games
