I think it is safe to say that at this point not a single instance of a usable DRM protection scheme has been found that has not been "cracked" by pirates within days if not hours. Therefore the only effect that DRM has is to limit the access and use of a product by the customers who pay for that product. For this reason I am wholeheartedly against the very concept of Digital Rights Management. Thank You
