DRM is nothing more than a hinderance to those of us who attempt to remain on the legal side of the copyright line. It can easily be broken by scofflaws who obtain media by non-legal sources. I purchased music through iTunes which became completely unplayable when I switched from Windows to Linux. The only way to play this music was now to break the DRM. Who is served by this???
