It could be worth asking the EAC people.
From their web site:
"A SDK of EACs extraction routines is available for licensing.
The SDK consists of a DLL that can easily be integrated into a
variety of programming environments like Visual C++, Delphi
or even Visual Basic. It comes with interface definitions for these
environments and a detailed documentation.
As this is a commercial project, the licensing cost is most probably
only affordable for commercial projects. EACs routines are often
used for archival purposes, e.g. in YLE and other radio stations.
It is also used in end-user applications like e.g. CD-Tag."
