Features, Office Users of Microsoft Office can now choose one of the Creative Commons licenses for work created in Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Microsoft and Creative Commons, a nonprofit organization that offers flexible copyright licenses for creative works, partnered with 3sharp LLC to develop and test this new copyright licensing tool, known as the Creative Commons add-in for Microsoft Office.

DRM may not be 'evil', but it is inherently unworkable and stupid.

If I have the ability to see/hear the data, I can copy the data and remove the DRM - even if its hard to do so, it can by very definition be copied.

Of course, DRM is not to stop you from copying something - it is to stop you from altering the original. In the enterprise this is absolutely of critical importance.
