Not very likely. uPlay is not stuck in your tray by default and launches only when you're playing uPlay DRMed game.
Origin, when installed, is automatically up and stays running 24/7 no matter if you're playing it's game or not, spamming commercials and doing god knows what else (well… now we know what else might that be).

Since when reverse engineering of a malware is illegal? If it suddenly is, all antivirus companies are as good as dead.
Just to make something clear. Malware is a piece of software that does something you're not aware of and are not happy with when you learn what it is. Virus is not malware to it's creators.
