I'm against DRM content and refuse to buy it anymore. But I don't see it as quite the end of the world thanks to the internet.

The market works fine when there is competition, and DRM will fix itself so long as people can continue to make use of the new plethora of content funding alternatives. The industry is getting clobbered by the likes of patreon, kickstarter, and other direct-to-creator alternatives, and the writing is on the wall. The entire news industry is tanking, and that is just the tip of the iceberg.

Let them DRM whatever they want, I say. I don't have to buy it, and I won't.
