Steam-free Skyrim has been available on these certain sites since 11/10/2011, i.e. a day before the official release of the game so Steam did (unfortunately if I may add) not even prevent zero day piracy in Skyrim's case. It probably had to do with the fact that the original Skyrim.exe did not require Steam to run so Skyrim ended up being very easy prey for the usual suspects.
