DRM is a terrible thing for consumers. I want to be able to buy music and movies without the hassle of DRM and have full fair use of them. DRM means that I don't own whatever it is that I've bought. I am just renting it from Sony or whoever maintains the licensing servers. As has happened many times, the servers were shut off and all that money went for a product that doesn't work any more. Please don't support this technology. DRM is a product that consumers don't want.
