DRM is anti-consumer and does nothing to stop piracy-- games and movies with some of the most stringent forms of DRM have the copy protection cracked at release (or before, in some cases). The only people DRM affects are the legitimate consumers of said products, and I strongly feel that DRM should be illegal, especially in forms where it infringes on the end-user's rights.
