To add to the nerd rage, though not quite in the same medium, video game DRM has been fairly ridiculous as well.

Assassin's Creed II, for PC, requires a constant and unyielding internet connection to the publisher's (Ubisoft) servers, or the game will cease to allow play.

Now, this also counts for if the player has a minor hiccup, say, a two second interruption in their connection. This also counts for if these fine and dandy Ubisoft servers are not functioning, which, to my knowledge, seems to happen quite often.

I can strongly recommend, however, back on the subject of music, [deleted]. They have some very low prices (around $1.30 per album), and it is quite legal. I believe they have a 6-month window for downloading/redownloading, but there is no DRM, and it's easy enough to download 4 gigs of music and back it up on a DVD-R.
