DAMN THAT MAC OS X FORCING WINDOWS USERS TO RESORT TO CRACKING TO READ THEIR DOCUMENTS! ;-)
Call it however you want, you are removing
I might be removing the DRM on a game billed as DRM free. That is entirely possible. And I believe the DMCA would make me a criminal under US law. Too bad I'm in the EU where I believe the parallel they managed to get through of that has a clause to the effect of it having a degree of effectiveness.
But you're right, unless it's a game like the D&D master collection where the GG installer just installs everything to a folder and asks you to run the setup.exe in that folder, I guess I am circumventing copy protection of a sort. Bettercall the feds on Microsoft and Apple. Both their OS'es come with tools to break DRM and I believe that distributing software which can be used to remove DRM is in fact illegal in the US. ;-)
But actually I'm not sure if you need to login and have an internet connection if you already have the installer cached. I never tried copying the downloaded files and the installer onto a clean computer before, might be worth a try to see if it only requires the user/pass to download.
At any rate. I'd still say the DRM free games on GG are in fact DRM free. The fact that you need a username and password to download and install it is not what I'd consider DRM. Heck Gog has for instance on Riddick got more DRM than that what with there being actual DRM .dll files loaded with the game, even if it's neutralized.
