Rename DRM. Idiots.
You can call DRM Digial Consumer Enablement, as an HBO Executive wants to do, or you can call it sunshine on a stick. The problem isn’t what it’s called, the problem is what DRM actually does: Digitally Restricts Media. Given my experience with a PDF book I bought–that had DRM on it–I will never ever knowingly buy a piece of digital content that is laden with DRM. I would make two exceptions to the no-DRM rule:
Audio content from iTunes, mostly because it can be easily circumvented and, in some cases, later upgraded to a higher-quality DRM-free version for a nominal charge.
DRM content that does not cost me any money. If someone wants to DRM a piece of free content, fine with me.
