It's there to make it more difficult (just like customer support in a lot of places).
In the class action suite that SONY lost with SPORE, they are supposed to 'clearly' show that the game is protected by SecuROM DRM on the retail packages as well as for On-line purchases - they don't. For on-line, they weasel out by providing hard to spot links that not many click to check out.
But apparently, there is a way to OPT-OUT by writing SONY within 30 days of accepting the On Line agreement. (Assuming that there will still be a US Post Office when you mail it.)
