The Case Against DRM Needs to Be Made Now.

Or rather, it should’ve been made 10 years ago or more. But no, then we were told – even by members of the tech press and many prominent geeks – that DRM was there for our own good, to “produce more content,” to “allow creators to have a chance.”

Well, it never had a chance of doing any of those things and was never intended to do any of them.

It was all about control and removing it from both users and creators, and locking up the entire culture in a rent-by-the-minute prison.

So easy to predict, no matter how vociferous and dismissive the opponents to this obvious conclusion were a decade ago.
