I will make this short and simple. DRM doesn't work. Pirates still pirate and the only people that are punished is the people that legitimately buy the product. I have had two computer systems crashed due to overprotective DRM management. It has become easier for me to pirate software instead of buying it and jumping through hoops to use it.
