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."

Just more pablum from the "data must be free" crowd. DRM is about raising the cost of piracy for the average person to the point that they would more likely conform with the copyright. It isn't about eliminating piracy. That's an impossible goal.
