I go out of my way to avoid DRM-enabled products, for example I will not buy Spore (which you undoubtedly heard about in other comments). I also refuse to buy from iTunes Store for the same reason (although I understand that DRM will be removed...maybe I'll change my mind then). DRM does little to avoid piracy, it just presents a fun challenge for a few folks for a few minutes until they crack it.
