You don't get it. Censorship and extortion should never be "easy".

Good luck. Circumventing DRM in a "Living Standard" will be a
really-fast Whack-A-Mole. Plus circumventing DRM is a felony in the
United States, which you could prove quickly with a spider. Google,
Yahoo, and Microsoft can do the same thing and put you and your site on
a permanent blacklist (a la their phishing databases).
