Nobody loves DRM

8 01 2007

I’m excessively pleased to tell you that the Ban DRM petition on the Prime Minister’s site (started by yours truly) now has over 1,000 signatures, and is the most popular petition in the “Science, technology and inoovation” category. Even more popular than banning animal testing.

If you’ve no signed yet, do so. We all know DRM sucks the big one and even though we probably won’t get any resolution, any publicity is good publicity, eh?

For those who want to know more about anti-DRM activism, check out DefectiveByDesign.org, run by the Free Software Foundation. They were kind enough to publicise the petition, and they’re so nice!

Signed :-) Though to be honest, I think you’ve got an uphill struggle trying to ban DRM altogether… DVDs in their present form would become illegal ;-)

Anyway, I look forward to the day when I can actually do what I want with my own media…

Hi Neil,

I see that the Prime Minister has now responded to your petition. I’m working on a news story about this today – would you like to comment?

Thanks,

Graeme
