I am not opposed to DRM in principle, however I strongly disapprove of the way that many corporations have implemented DRM. Especially egregious are cases of "Spyware DRM" such as occurred with the EA game SPORE. It should be illegal for software to be installed on computers without notification. And all DRM software should be simple to remove.
