Microsoft

Summing up these 45 pages, one can say that Microsoft basically grants itself very broad rights to collect everything you do, say and write with and on your devices in order to sell more targeted advertising or to sell your data to third parties. The company appears to be granting itself the right to share your data either with your consent "or as necessary".

You done got Scroogled.

How are the two even tangentially related? Do you even actually know what the Windows DRM components do, beyond the "oooh DRM bad!"?

I mean, your argument is essentially "Graffiti is illegal, therefore, Banksy also probably steals cars."

Back at ayou. Do you actually know what they don't do? DRM is created not to trust you. If you trust it back, it's your own problem.
