Event on Saturday to get DRM out of the Boston Public Library [Feb. 7th, 2008|11:04 am]
The Boston Community



DefectiveByDesign.org has announced an action against libraries that support DRM on their collections. Boston locals can join them this Saturday from 1pm to 3pm at the Boston Public Library's main branch, and non-locals are encouraged to stage an action against their own library if it's using DRM.

Remember when the first DVD encryption scheme was cracked by a fifteen-year-old from Norway? Man, did I ever laugh.

For me the funniest "copyright protection" scheme is those little dots they put on film prints now.

"We know it was recorded in Boston! Now, we just need to find out who in Boston has a camcorder!"
