A companies right to include DRM on their media/software is perfectably acceptable, just as it is my right to not buy anything that includes it. The concern I have is with media/software that is not clearly marked as having DRM. Any media or software which has limitations on its use should be clearly displayed BEFORE purchase and should be explicit in explaining the details of how the media/software is managed. It would be ideal if this information is not buried in a EULA, but this is mostly a wish.
