DRM is seemingly a waste of time. Pirates can still break the code, and consumers who buy these products are punished by not being able to use the product to its fullest potential. Anti Piracy measures probably cost these companies more money than the results of this piracy. Most people are not thieves or pirates. The majority of us are consumers and fans of these products and we are willing to plunk down our money and buy products which we deem worthy of our cash.
