All DRM succeeds in doing is hurting the people that go about purchasing their music and other media legally. For example, with iTunes DRMed music you can only burn a CD of that music five times. Want to burn another CD, well sorry you can't because you really don't own what you purchased, just the license to use it. People that download music and other media illegally never run into this problem. DRM does not prevent piracy of media, if anything it encourages it.
