DRM was created to stop piracy. It doesn't work. Pirates put the games with DRM up in a matter for hours. What DOES work however, is the game companies ability to spy on people using DRM, limit the number of installs on their LEGIT customers who do keep the DRM on, and other things they never tell you beforehand. It's pointless, and a scam.
