DRM is a bad idea. It takes away your rights to software that you legally own. It allows the chance for these large companies to take advantage of people. Wal-mart and Microsoft have already done this to us. They stop supporting the DRM making your purchased item no longer functional. Then they can start a new scheme which they could later down the line stop supporting. They take away what you bought without compensation or an explanation.
