International Day Against DRM

Yesterday was an international day of protest against DIGITAL RIGHTS MANAGEMENT which is a flawed system to attempt to try and control how we use digital media.

There are better ways of doing things.  What worries me is we invest in DVDs and then at some point in the future we can’t play them, we buy a DVD get a Ultra Violet  copy and this is stored in the cloud, one day we won’t be able to play that,  so in the end will we end up paying multiple times to maintain our movie collection.

People need to be told of these things 24 hours before the event.  Sadly I only found out about this event on the day.  I am sharing the link anyway as it makes good reading.
