the "Uniloc" DRM protection scheme was actually used in a small number of games
and found too intrusive/unstable on Windows/PC platforms.
As comment #2 says, due to lots of customer complaints this DRM was removed by
game publishers in subsequent patch releases.
The usage was very limited and the activation servers are most likely not alive
anymore .. IMHO waste of time.

Looking at the profile, patent filings and who they sued -> patent troll
Tempted to close this ... or at least merge with bug 23177 ... but well.
