Yes, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me why EA execs seemed very excited about BioWare's MMORPG if it's a licensed property but that doesn't make me doubt that it is. There could be a number of reasons why the EA execs were excited, from the new technologies that BioWare is developing for use in its MMOG to just plain being excited at the prospects of EA having a AAA MMORPG in its portfolio. But unless one thinks someone from EA deliberately decided to leave the BioWare MMORPG check box for owned IP unchecked so as to mislead readers of the document then there is no reason to doubt the BioWare MMORPG IP is not BioWare/EA-owned and therefore licensed. Of course whether or not BioWare's MMORPG is using a LucasArts IP is highly debatable but I believe that it is.
