People know "DRM" ... the exact words, not so much. By using our choice of words instead of the publishers', we're not confusing the issue; if anything, we're clarifying it. Why should we let the publishers choose our language for us? DRM is DRM, but it's just as much up to us to say what the "R" means as it is to them.
