Re: Messed UP!
Stopping pirating is not the only reason they use DRM, perhaps not even the primary one. DRM means that their content will only be watchable on devices that have been approved by them. How many DVD/Bluray players let you skip the adverts or copyright notices that have been marked as unskippable? DRM lets them precisely control how every single player works, regardless of manufacturer. You cannot legally produce a player that they have not authorised. They can piss you off with unskippable bullshit until you want to kick in the TV, and what can you do about it? Crack the DRM to make it bearable? That's illegal, you horrible pirate. Sit back and take it like a law abiding citizen.
