It's not just DRM, it's anything that uses a password. Most software was written with poor security, i.e., passwords in the clear all the time, etc. If they even bothered with rot13 it would be an improvement.

Keep a password encrypted until use, and then overwrite the plain text after you're done with it. Sorted.
