In the past month the folks at Starforce have made some waves with their anti-piracy technology. Most notably was an act by one of their forum administrators posting a link to a torrent of a game within their forums claiming to make a point but still helping to aid distribution.
Today it's a new story though, with the ever growing list of complaints about Starforce in regard to security and a class action lawsuit in the works, Ubisoft has officially cut off further use of the program in their titles.
This marks the second developer to dump Starforce software, Aspyr Media being the first who cut it out of the loop for Spellforce 2: Shadow Wars. The first new title to be Starforce free will be Heroes of Might and Magic V, but even this will be making use of a yet to be released anti-piracy system although most likely no where near as controversial and troublesome as Starforce is these days.
Personally I find it interesting seeing as Ubisoft was their biggest supporter, it leads me to wonder what the future has in store for them if such a large publisher is backing away from this program. I mean the industry isn't blind afterall. We'll have more titles that will be effected by this as we approach E3 this year.
