Charles Stross says it better than I have

People who know me have heard my DRM diatribes on multiple occasions. I hate it. It gets in the way, and it provides a vector for malware. It allows for ugly theories of ownership. It solves no problems except for imaginary ones. (Which isn't to say that there aren't real problems to which it's intended to be a solution. It just doesn't solve them.) Here's somebody else's diatribe.

P.S. Read Accelerando.
