I believe DRM restricts our rights of ownership. If one buys a product--music, a video game, a film, they are given the right to use that product as many times as they want (unless specified otherwise as in a subscription). DRM restricts this right by limiting their right to reuse their owned product. It should be within the owner's power to use that product for themselves on whatever device wherever they are. A restriction of this right is unreasonable and wrong.
