DRM is a technology that can be implemented effectively and not become a hinder to the consumer. The problem is that certain games DRM treats every consumer as a thief and therefore makes the consumers jump through hoops so to speak in order to get a game to work. I believe there is nothing wrong with authentification keys and for online games having them checked to make sure the key is authentic. Companies that I believe are good models for how to make sure games DRM are good for the consumers and the companies are Blizzard and Valve.
