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.

My response was to perspicuity's comment, which seemed to imply that he/she interprets the "free software" movement as a movement against software costing money/programmers getting paid.

Obviously companies have the right to distribute content they create under the licensing agreements of their choosing. Unless, of course, that content relies on a preexisting piece of content with its own licensing requirements about how it can be used :).
