I'd hate to work in their PR department right now if this is true.

I read that it is only there for checking the release date then is gone, who knows if thats true though and I don't agree if they did it.

From a Blue's News comment by BioWare's Technical Producer, Live Team, Derek French:
Quote:

Sorry, but there is some confusion on this. We use Sony Release Control which shares some functionality with other Sony products (SecuROM), but we do not use SecuROM for the DRM. Once the Sony Release Control check is passed, Release Control self-destructs, removing the Release Control wrapper and it is never used again. Game updates will not use Release Control because obviously the release date is passed. Additionally, installing the game and then any future game patch will also remove the Sony Release Control check and it will never run on your computer.
