DRM eh?

...due to the nature of digital content, in that it is made available immediately and cannot be returned... Eh? isn't the point of all that fancy DRM that it's licensed only for use by the account holder and only if he has an online connection to validate it? Can they not just unlicense/disable his copy of the game and let him play the stuff he's licensed for? I dislike DRM as much as the next person who finds it a minor inconvenience when the internet connection is down, but in this case surely it could be made to work in the customer's favour? Ah, no wait, silly me...
