I feel that DRM does little to help the game/software industry. At best, it's a minor inconvenience for pirates. They will always find a way to beat it, meanwhile honest consumers are being punished and limited with products they have purchased. Better pricing, and more friendly policies are the way to stop people pirating (see: GoodOldGames.com, who have no DRM and excellent pricing), not enforcing strict limitations on how and where something can be used.
