It doesn't allow you to back-up your game or to play it anywhere without being logged into the steam account (even if it's offline mode, it's still DRM).

From the same User Agreement you have sent me:

"In the very unlikely situation that we have to stop running GOG we'll do our best to give you advance notice, so that you can download and safely store all your DRM-free content."

In your example from 2.1 it's referred to services like streaming. The content is yours. They can't take it away. You buy the game, you download it and then you can even delete your gog account. You can play that game for your entire life, and beyond.

Look at this page from GOG, this is what they stand for: https://www.gog.com/news/the_fck_drm_initiative, Respectively: https://fckdrm.com/



That was the guys point, steam itself isn't DMR inheriantly.

You need steam open to play steam games.
if youre banend from steam? no games, if steam shuts down? no games.

On GoG you get the full file and you can reinstall it and copy it as ofhten as you want.

The Divinity games on Steam only require the client be running to install or update. They can be backed up, restored and played without Steam installed.
