DRM Software on Kings of Leon CD

I recently bought the new Kings of Leon CD. It won't let me play it without downloading some b.s. DRM software and it won't let me burn to iPod. How do I get around this?

This is really pissing me off, to the extent that I've written the bands management to complain. Basically, they have a DRM that states explicitly that you cannot convert to Apple's format. Of course, it doesn't say this anywhere on the CD packaging, which means I've been ripped off 10 bucks. Anyway, anyone know a way to get around 1) having to download the ridiculous software in order to even play it on my computer and 2) how to get around the whole iPod issue? This album is AWESOME and I want it in my damn iPod.
Bonus Points - any ideas on how to spread the word on this and maybe shame the band or label into stopping this B.S.? I mean, if they would just mention it on the packaging, I would have downloaded from iTunes and been done.
