You're making the fallacy of composition. Just because something is true for a certain part of the whole, or even every part of the whole at one certain point in time, doesn't mean that it's a feature of the whole. DRM very clearly does not have to be a feature of GMOs, just like software very clearly does not have to have it. Imagine, in some alternate universe where the Free Software Foundation never existed, that all software eventually contained DRM. Would you then call yourself anti-software? No! If you're against one certain feature of something, but you otherwise like the thing, then don't say you are against the thing as a whole. Say you are against the one feature. Don't be surprised if people misinterpret you when you say you're anti-GMO, but you really aren't.
