edit: This was the article I was talking about. The guy who said it is the Senior Vice President of Global Ecommerce. http://www.pcgamer.com/2012/06/06/ea...rty-%E2%80%9D/. I think EA is pissed they can't price gouge the PC market.
It may very well cheapen Intellectual Property, but that's only worth what you can sell it for anyway. If you make more $$$ selling gobs of copies under $20 then that's better for the company.

But if EA was opposed to these types of sales then they never should have opened Origin as a storefront in the first place. They'll never compete as a distribution platform without them. The only thing it does is bring all the EA games into one platform, which they already had anyway.
