Ubisoft's New DRM: Must Be Online To Play

The latest move, sent in by a whole bunch of you, is to require copies of games to call back home to Ubisoft every time they're used. Yes, you will need to be online, and the game will need to phone home before you can use it. Of course, if Ubisoft actually thinks this is going to hold back those getting unauthorized copies of the game, it's mistaken. The Ars Technica article above quotes one file-sharing gamer:
"This is fine. I only have to access the Internet once to get Ubisoft games. You're the ones paying for a broken copy."
