Please put something into the game so it is impossible to play without the original disk or something because i would hate for this game to be pirated. for example, halo 3 doesnt have any protection at all and is available for download (not torrent) on a number of sites that i can link right now (but i won't) i think a great game like this should not be, i guess a good word would be abused, like that. so please be careful and make it hard to copy/pirate

No way. Pirates always find a way, customers don't. In the end, needless protection only leads to pissing off the actual customers. Look at what happened when Ubi used Starforce: the games got pirated anyway and the customers had loads of problems running them.

I don't condone pirating in anyway but it's not like Ubisoft is going to be affected by the miniscule amount of money they'll lose from the people that are going to take the time to pirate the software...

...yes, I just said that.

Not to mention Bioshock's PC protection measures making it impossible for people who got it to even play the game until their servers were back up...

You have to understand that crackers intentions ain't really to screw up the dev's profit nor to sell the game on their own 32x cheaper http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Deviance, Vitality, Razor1911 etc. they all compete who will be the first to "unlock the game". It's the people without brain who try to sell someone else's handy work... Or should I say intellectual property, hehe

But that's always been the case with copy protection, the kudos was the main reason.
It's as you say, the ones that grab the crack and sell the pirate copies, or upload it to places as if they've done the work.

Bio-shock is already leaked and people play it on private servers for activation!

But i have to say the only hack that i have ever used is no-cd patch. i lost soo many cds until one day my friend told me you can get a patch that allows you to play without a cd but only if you have the original (as the disclaimer said)

but thats pretty much legal for the no cd thing( <span class="ev_code_RED">well atleast the reasons i use it for</span>) . But complete 100% download. i have no respect for that. Man i just want to know when this thing is coming out so i can pre-order

(WHY....WHY HAS HE TO SPAM THAT MUCH POSTS)

But true, it will not take long for that no live freaks to find a way to copy ac
they can even burn psp games
but they are still losers anyway
The only reason for me to pirate stuff, is because it is a) illegal like manhunt b) not able to get here (Why does nobody in this country despite myself hear dashboard confessional)

Anything in any electonic format or distributed electronically can (read: will) be cracked.

Don't use copy protection, it just screws up my computer and makes me mad. Then again, I'm playing this on my 360, so I wont care too much. I think.
