"And the computers can be instructed not to make things easy."

You can get an external blu-ray player for about £35 on eBay. Now the DRM may prevent you playing the content using an "unauthorised" player; but what it cannot do is prevent you from copying the data onto your hard disk. Once it's there the DRM can be stripped out...sooner or later (and my guess would be sooner) the key will be leaked or the DRM will be cracked and about 10 seconds after that point-and-click tools that anyone can use will be all over the net.

Intercept the signal or work directly on the ones and zeros....DRM will fall in the end.
