They also use the more appropriate term "Digital Restrictions Management" rather than Digital Rights Management, as this provides a much more accurate result of current DRM schemes.

Your Fair Right - assert it or lose it!

I don’t think the real purpose of DRM protection is to circumscribe the activities of (1%) people who file-share.
Its more than likely that the monopoly content hoarders have designed their DRM systems specifically to deny the other 99% their fair use rights (as the other 1% continue to enjoy unscathed).
After all, forcing a proportion of 99% of people to purchase multiple copies of protected files (or their relatives/friends to do so) is exponentially more profitable to them than any amount revenue allegedly ‘lost’ to file-sharing.
By definition, if you pay the same price (or higher) for a digital edition as you do for a hardback/paperback copy (Macmillan, are you listening), then you have purchased the same First Sale rights on the former as already exist for the latter (irrespective of what any EULA/licence nonsense they may try to impose).
Once purchased, simply strip the DRM and sell or give away (share) as your inclination takes you (assert your fair use rights) — just as you have the right to do with your physical edition purchases.
Isn't life simple when you don’t have to worry?
