Well, that's yet to be tested. The DMCA is arguably illegal, but they aren't willing to test it in court (specifically, a home user who has purchased DRM media and breaks the DRM for solely personal use - which is arguably within copyright law/statutes, and would likely be upheld and legal, which would gut DCMA).
They won't test DMCA (like that) because they will likely lose, at least some portion of it. So instead, they want to keep it out there as a threat to the people who are actually stealing money (e.g. distributing illegal copies), which is fine for that purpose, but remains an annoyance to the normal user who often is forced to break DRM just to use what they legally purchased.
If the music industry is any bell-weather, the movie industry will dump DRM in 10 years or so. In the mean time, we all have to deal with it.
