DRM or not?

First, I want to thank everybody who advised me during work on my ebook, especially Alex Bell. It is now published.

However, I am still unsure what to do about copy-protection.

There are two options on the site where I publish the book (in Sweden): Adobe DRM or "watermark".

The latter means, as far as I can tell, nothing more than an extra chapter/page at the end of the book saying "This book belongs to <name of buyer>". (I think that page can be deleted.)

On the other hand I hear that DRM can be an irritating hassle, that you cannot freely move the book between your different devices, etc.

I donīt want to irritate my readers/ buyers, on the other hand I wish to sell the book and not just give it away.

Grateful for any advice of the Pro and Con of DRM/ watermark.
