Nowadays, for me, DRM is any third party program that I need to run alongside a game to get it to work. I don't much mind game keys as long as they don't require me to phone home to some random server.

Having said all that, Steam would obviously fall into the DRM category but I'm pretty forgiving of that service because of the convenience it adds (not to mention great deals). So, I personally excuse DRM as long as it doesn't make a nuisance of itself and offers something in return. Examples of DRM not welcome: getting TAGES errors when trying to play my new copy of The Witcher once upon a time and having to load up UPlay for the one Ubisoft title I own.

As to demos, I don't play them. I tend to rely on youtube gameplay videos.
