I'm pretty sure Uplay is only required if you buy it outside of Steam. I think the video review Blue posted yesterday mentioned that but I can't be positive that's where I remember hearing it. Nevermind, the Steam page says, "Requires a UPlay account". Fuckballs! as Debra Morgan says...

In any event, I agree with giving Ubisoft the finger whenever possible because of their past DRM bullshit. Vote with your wallet though or it will never change.
No it requires it. AC3 did as well.

I also like how Steam thinks AC3 is running because it launches UPlay. So I have something like 48 hours on AC3 already though actual play time is more like 6 hours because I would exit the game but not kill UPlay when I took breaks over Thanksgiving weekend.
