Yet more proof that DRM is bad for consumers.  When will these content
providers get it through their thick heads that DRM does absolutely
NOTHING to stop piracy but does cause hell and havoc for legitimate
users.  They might as well give the movies away for free while their
at it because the only people who seem to be able to get them without
any hassles are the PIRATES!

I'm getting pretty fed up with this crap.  Enough is enough, dammit!
