In the News And thus, our true colours reveal. Since Obama was the young newcomer, technically savvy, many of us were hoping that he might support patent and/or copyright reform. In case our story earlier on this subject didn't already tip you off, this certainly will: Obama has sided squarely with the RIAA/MPAA lobby, and backs ACTA. No copyright and/or patent reform for you, American citizens!

There are software that use these kinds of 'protection'. These software are still pirated or the mechanisms circumvented.

If you tied licensing and copy protection schemes to the user's bank account, I could assure you nobody would even touch it with a ten foot pole.
