Maybe if DRM was working, GoT would still be the most pirated show, but it wouldn't be anywhere close to the massive scale that its at now. DRM is stopping no one who wants the show but doesn't want to pay for it.
The only people DRM is affecting are those of us that pay for it, and have to deal with the DRM issues. Punish people who access it legally while people who pirate it get to keep their money and laugh at us. What a great business model.
So, something only works if it 100% effective?
Do you lock you door to your house. I sure hope you don't waste your time because if someone wants to get in, they can, making your lock ineffective.
DRM has some effect. The question no one knows the answer to is "how much." That includes you.
Seems to me, though, that pirating was more rampant 10+ years ago. Casual folk were downloading all kinds of stuff.
