I once speculated that DRM was doomed not from base profit motives of thieves but by the shiny-red candy-like nature of cracking the problem to a certain mind.

I think I found another piece of evidence that supports my supposition.

Look up how The Odyssey Notes were solved.

If you put a mystery out there and tell people it's unbeatable, there's going to be people who find that irresistible and if it can be beaten, they'll be the ones doing it.

Because they can.

It's especially obvious with DRM because they start with the knowledge that it can be beaten because a defeat needs to be built into it so the rightful purchaser can play the media.
