DMR is a waste of both the producer and consumer's time, most studies I've read have stated that DRM only delays pirates by days. I understand that they have a right to protect their intellectual property, but when i buy something i don't want to feel like i spent 60 dollars and it's more like I've rented. Some of the DRM that has been used recently seems more like it punishes the consumer than preventing piracy.
