Of course the validation itself is no inconvenience. Most seem to be annoyed by their personal computers being treated as wholly owned extensions of Microsoft/Adobe/Ubi/insert developer here. You say they have the right - but you seem to accept their intrusion only because it causes little inconvenience to you. Whilst the silly example in the OP of people busting your door down is too much, there is a case to be answered before, rather than after overreaching drm becomes inconvenient to you.
