I'm sick and tired of DRM. It has always been trumpeted as great for business, but it is bad for the consumer. I do not like buying the SAME product several times because the RIAA and the MPAA are afraid their product will be stolen. The thing is, it will regardless of what measures they use to protect it. The only person it hurts is the honest person who wants to buy a product. Me and the general public.
