I know its DRM before I buy it and if I didnt want DRM I wouldnt just buy it and then moan about it.
Wait till you have a computer crash and have to reinstall/re-enable your DRM purchases. Or maybe when the activation servers go down for good and you're left with a digital library that's no longer accessible. Then you'll start understanding how worthless DRM actually is. But, hey, you're about the first and only person I've ever seen defend DRM, so have at it. You're the perfect
customer for these price-hiking morons.
EDIT: ask the people who bought DRM'd PDF's a couple of years ago who can no longer access those files how they feel about DRM. Oh, and all the ones who, as of yet, can't replace their DRM'd LRX files from Sony. I bet they're really chuffed about DRM.
