Anecdotal evidence to be sure, but a reader poll by MyCE about DRM is nonetheless interesting. The reader poll, which surveyed 386 users, asked if "the implementation of Digital Rights Management (DRM) actually encouraged more people to illegally download cracked copies of movies or games instead of purchasing legitimate copies."
According to the results, 11 percent said no; 23 percent said it made no difference and a whopping 66 percent said yes.
Some will probably argue that the readers of the site are naturally skewed towards a negative opinion on DRM, or that the poll is highly unscientific, but the results are still interesting.
