Deferred Criminality

The Criminal Choice
You could perhaps call the bying of DRMed stuff the "deferred ciminality" option. At some point you will end up in conflict with the DRM. At that point you can either decide to just lose the stuff of you're going to be forced to pirate it one way or another.

It should be noted that DRM seems to be the one thing where the sellers don't maintain much backward compatibility.
