Agreed. The supposed need for DRM is predicated on a default assumption of criminal intent of all content providers' clientelle, and that this has to be mitigated by technical means.

What if we started from the assumption that most people just want an efficient and effective way to buy and watch movies.

Nobody (in recent cultural memory) has sucessully argued that books must be chained to the shelves to prevent IP theft, for example.
