The very easy answer is: users do not want DRM restrictions and providers must cater to those users. DRM has failed in mp3 downloads, in DVD players, in protected documents, and in the few areas where it is still tolerated (iPhone apps, DVD CSS, console games) enforcement is quite lax.
Circumvention is a valid possibility. AFAIK it is not illegal in the EU or elsewhere, so it can only be a problem in the US.
