This weekend you better read those ebooks you bought from Microsoft – because they'll be dead come early July

Re: And people frequently laugh "who buys CDs?"

That much? Remember the DRM also phones home and monetizes you, you're part of the product. I don't touch DRMed stuff unless it's at no cost to me and isn't wasting my time. Maybe 1-2 pence a view if it's got really high production values, a good cast and acting, and great plot, but I won't pay anything more that that for something that I can never share with anyone (i.e. loan it or invite someone over to watch with me) if the studio doesn't want it. Humans are eusocial creatures, studios forget this.

I'd shell out a lot of hard cash for a DRM free version of the same content. Ah well, that DRM stuff is just making a lot of money for the studio anyway, right? /sarcasm
