Day Against DRM: Tuesday, May 4th 2010 — Free Software Foundation

BOSTON, Massachusetts, USA -- Thursday, February 25, 2010 -- Social justice and online rights groups today announced that Tuesday May 4, 2010 will be this year's International Day Against Digital Restrictions Management (DRM).
The Day Against DRM will unite a wide range of projects, public interest organizations, web sites and individuals in an effort to raise public awareness to the danger of technology that restricts users’ access to movies, music, literature and software; indeed, all forms of digital data. Many DRM schemes monitor a user's activities and report what they see to the corporations that impose the DRM.

What I mean is, this event will have no effect on say the Movie Studios the biggest pushers of DRM.

They simply have to adapt their plans to suit the digital era because they are getting left behind.

Time stands still for nobody!

That's all.

fair enough im against DRM but im kind of reluctant to give this any real credance as it is by the same people who published this "article" which has about as much foundation on fact as the easter bunny: Windows 7 Sins — The case against Microsoft and proprietary software
