At least Ubi and Nadeo see eye to eye when it comes to DRM. Both were heavily into using StarForce.
The keyword in that sentence being: were. I think the StarForce thing was blown way out of proportion, but that's the Internet way... the real shame about dropping DRM is that it became much easier to cheat in TrackMania Forever. I spend quite lot of time every day cleaning out the "fruits" of that decision from the Dedimania world records database.
