Whether it is copy pasta or not is besides the point - it is still a EULA which is more restrictive than the original EULAs which came with the original games. Meaning I could buy a second hand copy, with more rights than I'd have from a new digital copy on GoG.
Secondly - an EULA does not have to be applicable to a game. I.e. by accepting this EULA, even though a game might not have the EUDM, you are still bound to those sections of the EULA. Which seems very odd to me.
What I meant was what you said...that only certain sections of the EULA are applicable in this case.
Then I would highly suggest reading what was posted - I said that even though only sections might be applicable. The EULA still forces you to accept the entire EULA as is. This also includes the non-applicable portions of the EULA.
If you need a better example of why this is a problem, then use this scenario:
Person A buys dungeon keeper, plays it, enjoys it, etc. For arguments sake Dungeon keeper does not keep track of any personally identifiable information... The EULA however, still provides EA with the right to track said information of person A.
On a side note - wasn't GoG meant to be DRM free? The EULA stinks of quite a lot of restrictions. Even if it might be copy / pasta. Which I doubt for a company the size of EA making many millions of dollars a year, and which no doubt has several lawyers on retainer to go through EULAs and various other legalities...
I mean, look at the actual text...?

I'm not even going to go into what's wrong with section 7...
