Softwrap DRM Still in X5?

Softwrap, as in the company, ceased operations in 2013. From the X5 page, selecting Studio edition brings me to a page that contains this exciting text:
New! Digital Rights Management
InstallAware DRM protects any Win32, Win64, or .NET application - with zero changes to your existing source code! Use any number of expiration parameters in Try-and-Die mode.

Clicking the "Learn More" link takes you to ... gement.htm, which shows you an InstallAware DRM dialog that contains a link to which goes to which goes... nowhere.

So, what is the actual DRM solution used, and who is maintaining/supporting it? Who does one contact if the DRM solution throws an error, or behaves incorrectly, or...?

Dear James,

Softwrap have provided us with the shrink wrap technology of our DRM product, which is subject to InstallAware's standard terms of support. Unfortunately, as you have already discovered, because Softwrap have ceased business, the ecommerce capabilities they provided are no longer available.
