Dragon Age II SecuROM Follow-up

Reclaim Your Game follows up further on their report that SecuROM is present in Dragon Age II, and BioWare's and EA's contention that the game's release control does not constitute SecuROM. They dig into the semantics of the situation, asserting that the game uses "SecuROM Release Control." They also have an article explaining why they have decided not to work with EA on these DRM-related issues, saying: "We left Bioware and EA to sort themselves out," before going on to expressing their willingness to work with other developers, publishers, and digital distributors to manage such issues. We inquired whether this was a commercial service, and they confirmed it is: "This is a commercial service we offer for Publishers, DRM Vendors and Digital Distributors. Our Evaluation Reports, etc that’s currently published are “free demos” of what to expect. The reports also function as a free service for Consumers." They add that their plan was to offer their services to BioWare for free.

DRM is fine with me as long as...

1. It does not run when I am not playing the game.

2. It does not collect demographic info about me (even if they swear it's anonymous)

3. It does not look at anything else on my PC besides the game that it is for and only then to verify that it is a legitimately purchased copy.

I have never found DRM from a major publisher that comes close to meeting those criteria.

I think you just described the Sony Release Control that was used on Dragon Age II.
