To whom it may concern, The only persons effected demonstrably effected by DRM are paying customers. Buy purchasing products with DRM on them customers are subjecting themselves to inconvenience and hassle, while those who choose not to pay and simply pirate the product have no such problems. You could make a strong argument that this actually leads more people to pirate products with DRM than would otherwise be the case. Of course theft is a problem, but DRM is not the solution. Thank you.
