Windows 7: Assassins creed 2 Drm strikes again?

That DRM crap is the reason I didn't buy the second game. I got the first and loved it (although never finished it).

I bought AC2 about 4 weeks ago from the store.
Finally got around to installing it this weekend, and you know what...? The key has already been used!
The store did say that the game cannot be returned because it has the DRM stuff, which means they wont even be able to resell it if I returned it.

So, I cant return it.
And I cant play it.

And the above is exactly why I criticize DRM so much. It's absolutely ridiculous that a pirate has to just download and then gets to play oh so easily yet the paying customer has to deal with garbage like that. It's like when activation is required for a product and it doesn't work and the customer has to be hassled with calling, typing in a bunch of numbers. The pirate just goes in and has to deal with nothing. It's an absolutely abonimable situation.

I'd contact Ubi about that to see what they can do for you.
