That is why it's up to the open source folks to prove to people that
having DRM is detrimental. If there are actually compelling and good
reasons why DRM should not be used then we need to help people understand
it and also prove it.
There's nothing to prove. The DRM people amply proved it is detrimental
already, with things like activation servers going down and making people
unable to play the games/music they paid for. As a consumer there's no
logical reason to subscribe to such a scheme. The only reason people do is
because large companies put it in front of huge amounts of content, making
avoiding it very difficult.
