For what content?
PDF files try FileOpen http://www.fileopen.com/products_compare.html The methods used in fileopen are as of yet, not publicly exploited, however print-screen can still be used to copy an image of a PDF no matter what "DRM" is employed.
As far as video and audio, nothing works, all have fallen. DVD, X-box, PS2, MacroVision, Windows DRM, Apple iTunes, Napster MP3's .... all have work arounds that produce very highquality copies, or hacks that produce exact copies.

For those users that aren't savvy enough to work around DRM software, there is plenty to choose from. Just know that you cannot and will not protect all content as long as you do not control the hardware itself.

QuickTime (apple) does also: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FairPlay
