I can't believe there is someone out there that is still ignorant about Starforce. Oh well, must be european because they continue purchase games from Codemasters AND the Trackmania people regardless of how intrusive and destructive their copy protection is. They don't care. At least UBI understood about SF. North Americans just won't put up with that crap. Look at Stalker---Sercurom for the Euro version, SF for the Russian version and here in Canada--the disk is not required to play. Got to the luv the free market over here. Now if only the euro PC users would wake up and stop buying SF protected games.
