The current state of DRM does not protect my interests as a consumer. They make it very difficult to use the product. I also believe that as a purchaser of a product I have the right to transfer my right to that product to another individual. With physical products I have that ability but with digital ones that right is being stripped from me. That adversly affects the value of the product and in my opinion should be against my rights as a comsumer. The distribution medium should not affect my rights as a comsumer. I don't violate the law and don't believe that those that do would buy the product if they can't copy it. DRM only hurts those that are trying to do things legally. Don't punish the law abiding citizens especially when no DRM is going to keep out the pirates.
