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.

I have no trouble paying for software, especially since I run a Mac and Apple's software tends to be on the "reasonable" scale for what you get. Also, I couldn't code a software editing program to save my life, and I'd sooner edit on fucking Ulead or some consumer level shit than touch that folk code pesashit called Celluloid.

i definitely buy my software. sometimes i grumble over buying the new 10.X from apple, but i buy it.

take a look at craigslist, you'll see people selling apple hardware LOADED with every known major software, all the latest versions, pretty much all of it guaranteed to be pirated. heck, for the cost of some of the cheaper laptops, you'd be getting the entire adobe software suite for free! and you'd still have 100 more titles. the hardware is just the delivery device ;) that's fair! ;) [smiley captioned for the humor impaired :>]

This raises the rather important question of why you'd WANT the full Adobe suite. I wouldn't touch Premiere with a stick.
