Ubisoft accused of pirating its own Assassin’s Creed digital music.

[newsimage]http://static.rankone.nl/images_posts/2011/03/Wlf10L.jpg[/newsimage]France-based video game publisher Ubisoft elicited scorn from gamers and consumer rights advocates due to its widespread implementation of 'always on' DRM protection within the PC versions of countless titles. The measure was intended to cut-down on piracy, but found little favor within the gaming community. In January, the company relented and removed all DRM via an update. Ironically, Ubisoft is now being accused of including music torrents from file-sharing site Demonoid as a bonus in the PC release of hit game "Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood." Especially odd since the music in question is Ubisoft's own "Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood" soundtrack.

DO NOT READ! You are now living in the “Do as I say, not as I do” mentality from Corporations. They get to steal shit, but we don’t? I hope one of the musicians from the soundtrack sues the living crap out of Ubisoft.

Well they aren’t stealing it if they own it, but the only odd thing about this is that it went to a torrent site…Why not just have it link to their server to download the soundtrack?

Also, the artists of the music for the game get paid a percentage of every sale and Ubisoft owns the rights to the music.
