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.
