DRM is something that only really hurts the actual consumers. If someone wants to pirate something, it will be pirated, these people are really good at what they do. DRM just limits the people who actually buy the items in terms of new installs on a video game if they reformat their computer, or redownloading a song from itunes if your hard drive wipes. DRM only hurts the people who actually buy their music/movies/video games.
