I haven't looked in to this in a big way, and don't play games on my PC too much these days due to it's poor specs but I can't see the point in software that only hurts the people who do actually spend the money to buy a product. Anyone who doesn't want to buy it, will pirate it regardless and have a nicer experience by doing so, and it seems to me that if anyone is on the fence on the decision in whether to buy a game or pirate it - DRM will probably push them to the wrong side.
