One can't help but wonder if this video would exist if there were any other choice…

I think your going a bit far. Lawsuits are targeted whereas DRM is indiscriminate. Collateral damage and inconvenience are the two arguments against DRM that I most agree with. Also a less tangible "being treated like a criminal". I think your reasoning is conflating anti-DRM with pro-piracy. While we may share some goals, it's important to not accidentally make their goals ours. Someone downloading a game they don't own is still wrong, legally and morally.
