One problem

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on February 03, 2006 06:22 AM
I respect Thorvals view...<nobr> <wbr></nobr>... there's one problem though. We can't fight DRM like he suggests. We can't fight DRM'ed content the same way we fight non-free software. (by writing free software).
It works fine to decide "I'll only use free software". You can do most things.
However... you cannot decide "I'll only use non-DRM content". Of course you can decide it for yourself, but not for your family. Especially not for your children. Imagine how you will affect the social life of your children, if you enforce such a rule on what they can use.
