Ubisoft ditches StarForce

"Shacknews is reporting on a forum thread on the Ubisoft Heroes of Might and Magic forums where a developer claims that the StarForce copy protection system won't be used in the next version of the game. Ubisoft did not state the reasons behind its decision to discontinue StarForce, but the company will reportedly switch to another copy protection system. This follows the filing of a $5 million class-action lawsuit against Ubisoft for its use of StarForce in a series of games, including XIII, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Silent Hunter 3, and Splinter Cell 3: Chaos Theory.
