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."

It has nothing to do with piracy at all.

Uh, yeah, it does. Don't be disingenuous.

It does nothing to raise the cose of piracy

Of course it does. Most people have no idea how to duplicate a DVD, for example. There is therefore a knowledge cost associated with pirating that content.

- it does however violate the constitution of most democratic states, in that it limits constitutional rights.

Then fight it in court.

I know the american system is bOrked, but that doesn't mean the rest of the world should make our systems equally bOrked.

Yeah, the american system is so "bOrked" that it has the number 1 economy in the world and dominates the content industry. Wow, talk about "bOrked". The Eurosocialists would love to be in such a position.
