DRM is code out of the users control that is executed on the user’s machine with no control over that code for purposes that are contrary to the user’s interests.

Why is this not considered malware?

Actually if I wanted to get a user to execute malware, I would just hijack whatever DRM he had on his machine. It will most likely have superuser privileges by default.

Well, I do consider it malware. And I for one consider laws protecting malware to be invalid.
