Day Against DRM

Day Against DRM vertical banner Been a while since my last blog post but this is important I believe. Why do I believe it is important? Because not only does DRM take away from our potential choices when we buy something DRM infected but it also promotes piracy. This may be a controversial statement but why is it that I cannot just put a blu ray disc in my Linux computer and view the damn movie when if I download the exact same movie from Pirate Bay (no I do not use Pirate Bay, I never have and I never will) it will play out of the box. It is time for the media industry to understand that DRM has not done anything to stop piracy of movies and music but only made it harder (in some cases nearly impossible) to be a law abiding citizen.
