Ubisoft 'pirates' own music for Assassin's Creed OST?

0

Ubisoft stands accused of torrenting its own music in order to compile an official soundtrack for the digital deluxe edition of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood

According to Reddit, the soundtrack's MP3s were first encoded as FLAC files by someone who goes by the name of arsa13. This information points one to the logical conclusion that somebody at Ubisoft decided to torrent the soundtrack and convert the tunes to MP3s, rather than use the original source files. 

The best thing about all this is the fact that Ubisoft has come under fire for its oppressive DRM measures and has made no secret about its commitment to combating software piracy. That it has been caught potentially pirating its own material is quite, quite funny. 

Ubisoft is apparently looking into the matter. It's also building a big glass house to throw stones in.
