How often do the copyright owners on content give a flying fig in a
rolling donut about efficiency if it interferes with being able to
control who accesses the content, and how?

Look at the legislative history of attempts to fix the anti-circumvention
clause of the DMCA so it's not illegal to do technical tricks to access content
you have a legal right to access.  That should tell you all you need to know
about the motivation for this....
