Why DRM is spyware

And further on the subject of DRM –

Freedom to Tinker (via Digg):

So if you’re designing a CD DRM system based on active protection, you face two main technical problems:

1. You have to get your software installed, even though the user doesn’t want it.
2. Once your software is installed, you have to keep it from being uninstalled, even though the user wants it gone.

These are the same two technical problems that spyware designers face.

The question is, how much is it going to take before the people pushing DRM figure this out?
