DRM MP3 players?

    In the UK just looking at MP3 players.
    Found a nice Samsung but noticed the features include "DRM".

    Would this mean that it is totally useless for putting your cd
    collection on because it won't play them unless they are proper
    purchased MP3's?

    This seems to totally void the purpose in having an MP3 player.
