Internet & Networking Not too long ago Adobe started a "We love Apple" campaign, as a response to Apple's continuous negative remarks about the company. With Flash 10.1 slowly but surely appearing on more and more mobile devices, it seems like the company just doesn't care about it any more. Adobe's CEO Shantanu Narayen has said they've "moved on".

Why would releasing the Flash source code mean removing DRM?


When you are talking about DRM you are really talking about encrypting data and limiting access to the end user.

You can't release this type of encryption scheme along with keys to the data. It's like giving away keys to a house with a note that says please only use if you have permission.

Actually, the current situation is pretty much like hiding the keys under the door mat and praying nobody figures that out.

Slightly more secure, but not really.

Maybe if there is a note on the door that says: Keys are around here somewhere, but please don't look for them.
