No online pass is needed for a games on demand version of a game. Online passes were implemented to fight used games sales. You are buying a new version of the game when you buy a games on demand copy. Enjoy!
This seems reasonable and logical, however searching for Bad Company 2 on xbox.com shows this before you click on the game page:
VIP Access is not included with Games on Demand purchase.
EA is nuts. They seriously don't take the time to work out giving players who pay full price for an intangible product that has no resale value full online access?
That being said, I'm actually strongly considering picking up the GoD version of BC2. I'm a Battlefield nut and have put in tons of time into the disc version so I already have the lame VIP access and the Vietnam expansion. How cool would it be to essentially turn this into another Battlefield arcade game and be able to boot up a quick match or two at any time? That might be worth 1200 points to me.
My only concern would be the size of the remaining online community for BC2 with BF3 out now. I usually play during crazy hours so I need there to be Conquest games available around the clock. Does anyone here know how BC2 is still holding up online? If not I'll pop in at the Battlefield dedicated thread. BF3 is a great online experience but I'm not sure I didn't enjoy BC2 more.

I'm thinking about making a new thread for 2012.
With almost 4500 posts it would not be a bad idea.

XBLA compilation discs contain several XBLA games on a single disc, but the DRM license embedded within each title is locked to that specific disc. "Worms" is another example of a game that was available on 512mb MU's as a promo, but only licensed for play from that MU. See OP's list by clicking "XBLA Discs" under the question "Q: I noticed some talk about "compilation discs?" What is that and is it cheaper?".
what do you mean on physical media?
