If they can work around it, then it was not very good in the first place. How superficial methods can ever be referred to as being protective is beyond me. Good DRM can never be exploited.
They'll just work around your DRM
By that definition there is no good DRM.
If it can be decoded/decrypted/... to be shown on a screen, played on a speaker, ... , then it CAN be saved in it's decoded form. End of story. Even if the OS supports this, the OS can still be running in a debugger. Not easy, but DRM cannot win from determined, skilled attackers.
And this is the internet age: you don't need to be determined nor skilled, all you need is somebody somewhere to show others how to do it. Look e.g. at the jailbreaking of iPhones if you want an example of how individuals defeat a proprietary system made by the biggest company on earth. Not just once, but again and again. Sure it's hard, but not "can never be exploited".
