Just days before Far Cry 2 is released, Ubisoft has revealed the game's DRM (Digital Rights Management). According to Ubi's UK Community manager:
So if your Windows installation gets fatally corrupted and needs to be set-up from scratch, just make sure you uninstall the game before the crash. =)

Arrg ! When will all this drm crap go away ?
When the game industry gets it that it's total bullshit.
Until then, the legit players have to suffer through it while the pirates enjoying DRM-free copies. Isn't it so, Indra? =)

Hey, look at the bright side: As long as new DRM crap comes out, scene fellas will have new challenges to beat, improving their 1337 sk1lls more and more. It's like game publishers are giving some poor kids at the other side of the planet free programming lessons for life.
And free games.

Hey, for 2 bucks a piece (price depending), to hell with my legal ideologies. :p
Although, I do feel sorry for all that money being wasted for "copy protection." Hell, I'm still playing my ass off. World of Warcraft anyone? :p
