DRM is worthless. Publishers believe that it will help their sales by preventing piracy and the like, but in reality it makes many, many users mad as it can lock them out of games and music that they have previously bought legit. With the right DRM, it can even bog a users system down. Basically, I believe there are better alternatives than DRM and with for every publisher to realize that and take note that nobody but them likes it.
