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.

The stuff I like best is just the stuff that stops the copying. No narcing, no rootkits, nothing like that, just "Hey! You can't just copy this! Stop being an asshole!"

people think they have it rought now? heh.

back in the day, SOME copy protection software actually would erase (or attempt to) your drives, and play horrible sounds, and flash nasty messages about being a pirate; good stuff ;)

problem is, sometimes it would trigger even on legal installs. bugs. if you're going to erase someone's drives, at least be sure ;)

remember that hack that was going around that would erase your .mp3s? yah, that was funny :>
