Fighting DRM in the market is a fallacy.
Purchasing choices are often too lumped together to make a definite statement.
Also, the list of options offered to people is designed as part of a strategy, not a just democracy.
Finally, the software/electronics industry can leverage a third party (such as the music industry) to make their DRM'd devices have a plus side.
