DRM and You

This was kicking around a while ago, but I think it’s relevant – especially for family members who don’t understand or care to understand about how DRM could affect their lives. I think particularly important is the last point – you want to move that DVD you bought to your iPod? Nope, can’t do it.

Speaking of Apple, they’ve been taking some flack over their new DisplayPort on Macbooks. All is not happy in Apple land.

Yikes – definitely not happy in Apple land – that is pretty terrible in fact.
The handbag article was funny however the comparison is not completely fair (I can ‘lend’ you my music but I still have a copy). I certainly agree that DRM is not the answer though.

Thanks for the PureTracks recommendation – the selection is somewhat limited however it works great in Canada 🙂

I’m still alive. I guess DRM isn’t affecting my life as you say it would 🙂
