Ok, so every file and program on your hardrive will have different rights. One you can use all the time. another file can only be used every other month. Some other files can only be used on tuesdays. This file can be used in january but you can't make copies of it. This file can only be used on fridays, you can only make copies on tuesday, it can only be printed on monday and you can't give it to anyone else. Ok this is a bit overdone but with thousands of files on your hardrive if everyone of them had different permission it would just become too difficult to use your computer. When you use a computer you don't know what files your gonna need, or want to use ahead of time that day. If they lock down technology like this nobody is gonna want it. What if you could only use your car on tuesdays because of DRM. what would happen to the automobile market. Don't they see?
