    Perhaps we could merge this comment thread with this thread?

    i think we need to make more threads till everyone knows how corrupt most if not all businesses are, never mind games companies. under the stopping piracy claim, sounds alot like the war on terror claim which was also just full of ulterior motives. IMHO

    You know I was browsing my Chrome plug ins the other day and wondered why the hell Uplay needed a browser plug in.

    To paraphrase Mandy Rice-Davies: Well they would say that, wouldn't they.

    Why doesn't ask persmission to install a plugin in the first place?
    If I install something and it installs something else with out asking, I get very angry and would probably never download/buy anything from that company again.

    Surely if you use Chrome this browser plugin doesn't do anything anyway?

    Why on earth does a game DRM need a browser plug-in anyway? Certainly if I had it installed that plugin would be getting the boot regardless of security flaws.

    Sounds like a Trojan to me, you think your installing a game but instead you end up with a malicious browser plugin.
