I doubt they are _that_ incompetent...

I think this and all the DRM methods they implement knowing they will be craked sooner rather than later are just means to
- A) create as much fear of punishment as they can, and
- B) buy themselves some time while they try to figure out some way to rule the digital age of entertainment as they were used to.
