Actually the law states only that engineering the software to strip DRM is illegal. And, promulgating such softwware is also illegal. But actual use of the software on one's own files is not illegal. However, the files are often covered by a Terms of Service agreement (TOS). But a TOS is not a law. In the past various "shrink-wrap" TOS agreements were struck down by the courts. This is NOT legal advice as I am not a lawyer and do not even play one on TV. But it is my understanding of the issue anyway.
