Ubisoft's DRM Cracked

A group named SkidRow, has announced that it has successfully hacked Ubisoft's conflictive DRM copy protection system. I seriously doubt this is a surprise to anyone after all the opposition the DRM has created in it's short existence.

In the hacked .exe file, SkidRow have included a file that reads:
“Thank you Ubisoft, this was quite a challenge for us, but nothing stops the leading force from doing what we do. Next time focus on the game and not on the DRM. It was probably horrible for all legit users. We just make their lives easier.”
Now the moment has come for Ubisoft, does the DRM benefit users that buy the game? Or only the company? Some better thinking and market analysis might help next time they come to us with a new copy protection system.

[People who would pay for it, will pay for it. People who wouldn't pay for it. Won't pay for it. DRM only affects those who buy it. It does not force people to purchase it, at all - Mark]
