I believe that DRM is simply inane. Apple's decision to remove DRM from their iTunes store was amazing for artists because of the public's obvious disgust towards DRM and its limiting nature. The debacle behind the video game Spore for the PC's DRM (which lead to a decision that requires a phone call to acquire more licenses for more installations, still pointless and time-wasting) should be a great example. Please, please get rid of DRM in full. It harms the creator more than the consumer.
