True. A lot of pirated games around were assembled with files from a Steam legit copy (probably because if you know how to crack one you can crack all as the DRM is the same). As far as I know, the best DRM measure (that isn't playing through a server like a MMORPG) lasted a full month after release. Most get cracked within weeks, or even before friggin release
(for high-profile games like Starcraft 2 where you get leaked copies).
Whining about it like Ubisoft does isn't an indication of anything, because games for consoles are pirated at the same rate.
Btw, some people can't get higher ISP. DSL/Dial-up is all you have in some areas (or none at all if the town's small enough).
So true. I'm locked at my sucky speed because no ISP doing serious business gives a damn about my area.
Still, even if blatantly lying about the actual download speed and time left, Steam does use up 100% of my available bandwidth when downloading. Since my cap is at around 80-ish kbit/s that's weeks of downloading 24/7 (especially for biggish games like TF2).
