"DRM is designed to make files difficult to share or pirate but in reality there are ways around the embedded DRM. This means that someone who really wants to share or pirate can and will, and paying customers are inconvenienced by the DRM.”

This is a good statement. I, for one, won't buy an audiobook unless I know that I can either remove DRM or it is DRM-free. I tend to use a lot of older tech and they keep updating the apps beyond what my devices can use. So being able to sideload audiobooks is very important to me. It's true that I probably won't relisten to the majority of my audiobooks, but if I want to, I should be able to since I paid for them.
