Like, I'm sure, many of you I hate DRM. The attempts by publishers to prevent the files they distribute online from getting copied. (Though this was also been applied to CDs, DVDs, & even VHS)

The best way I know to fight is by pushing alternative entertainment... You?


@alcinnz same here.

Got any other ones, maybe from a blog or something?
