First of all, authorizing a game through Steam IS a form of 'copy protection'. Second of all, Valve is lucky(? or planned) to publish recent popular games like TF2 and L4D to be intended online-multiplayer only, so pirates needs to first crack a game, then to somehow create a server that allows cracked games to be played on...the whole process is not worth the effort, since most players are not going to play a cracked version on some cracked server. Let's see what the piracy rate is for some non-online game Valve publishes in the future. That being said, there's relatively few pirated copies of HL2 around, maybe they just have very loyal customers?
