SecuROM Follow-Up - Official Statement
Following up on all the SecuROM discussions that have started since the release of Bon Voyage, EA has issued a few statements about it. One is from MaxoidDrea in which it is more or less denied that the problem is a significant one. Another thread started by MaxoidSam has thus far received a lot of response from fans with problems, ranging from disabled drives to other games, like SimCity 4, not starting up anymore. Also, EA claims SecuROM is an integral part of the game, and is therefore not in the EULA, despite the software installing its own third-party service if the game is run as non-administrator. Instructions on how to properly remove (and prevent reinstallation of) SecuROM are in a thread at MoreAwesomeThanYou (MATY). A common theme in the responses is that EA (together with Sony, creator of SecuROM) has lost all trust from several fans, as the legitimate customers are having trouble with the copy protection and are requested to send encrypted files to EA/Sony without knowing its exact contents. Despite all of that, the game was cracked within a day after the release.
