So an interesting story developed over the last few days when it was discovered that a StarForce forum moderator posted a link to a torrent of Galactic Civilizations 2 in response to a comment about the game not having any copy protection - with the clear intent of proving what happens if you don't use StarForce in your games.
Stardock Systems, the developers of the Galactic Civilizations series, posted their comments
outlining their position on DRM and stating that the game is selling extremely well despite not having any DRM.
In other StarForce news, Aspyr
have announced that they won't be including StarForce in the North American release of SpellForce 2 after an outbreak of negative attention when the controversial copy protection system was used in the demo.
