I'm sure you'll be getting many other comments to this effect, but it needs to be understood: DRM schemes treat the legitimate customers like criminals, while the actual criminals don't have to deal with them because they are routinely removed during "piracy". When the illegal option provides a (in some cases, much) better product something is horribly wrong.
