Legal "DRM is a lie. When an agenda driven DRM infection peddler gets on a soapbox and blathers about how it is necessary to protect the BMW payments of a producer who leeches off the talented, rest assured, they are lying to you. DRM has absolutely nothing to do with protecting content, it is about protecting the wallets of major corporations. The funny thing is they aren't protecting it from you, they are protecting it from each other."

AMEN to that article ;)

However, I've never heard it like that, DRM used to "edge EACH OTHER" (companies).

Competition is a bigger motivator than I thought. Still DRM has NO business in people's computers. If you try to limit what I can and can't play, then you are probing into my rights as a human being. THAT IS BAD, and illegal in most cases may I point out ;)

Anyways, I don't buy music with DRM tech, so I'm covered.
