We may not like DRM (and I suppose anyone who understood what it is, etc, wouldn't either), but the fact is that people keep happily consuming "protected" content, giving media companies a reason to keep doing it. There's no mass market backslash and stop consuming at all (and that includes not consuming piracy either). Piracy consumers usually do that due to the same reason media companies include DRM: Avarice, on the one hand you have companies that will not be happy until we "pay per play" and on the other there's the consumers that say "no I won't pay", but still want to play the content. It's a vicious cycle. Where one party gives reason to the other to keep doing what they're doing. Companies like AMD are simply caught in the middle and try to appeal to the masses with products such as these.
