    Playing with definitions
    What they seems to mean is “won’t talk to an authorisation server”. From that article:
    “The Sims division head, Ron Humble, said the game would use traditional serial code copy protection”, “The game will have disc-based copy protection”, “There is always going to be a level of protection for games and this solution [DRM free] is right for The Sims 3.”.

    I guess it all comes down to how you define “Digital Rights Management”, but to me, it sounds like they are still using DRM, just a somewhat less customer-antagonistic version.
