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."

Not really melodramatic, especially considering that the pro-DRM camp uses the same style arguments for DRM.

Why should the record companies limit you to the way you want to listen to the music that you paid to listen to. Or watch the movies you paid for. If it's technically possibly to re-encode a DVD to play on your psp/iPod/mediaplayer2000x then why should they limit you unless it's only to line their pockets with money? Especially when it makes it harder for people to play their content?

DRM = Greed
