DRM Fiasco Ruins James Cameronâs Avatar 3D Preview

,----[ Quote ]
| Avatar, the long-awaited science fiction epic 
| from James Cameron will launch this week, but 
| already some lucky individuals have seen the 
| movie. The same cannot be said of attendees 
| at a 3D preview showing in Germany yesterday 
| though. The movieâs DRM âprotectionâ system 
| failed and the video could not be decoded.


Remixed Danish tourist poster reflects the brutal new Copenhagen police-state 

,----[ Quote ]
| Carsten sez, "My friend, artist Camilla 
| Brodersen created a wonderful, freely-
| redistributable rehash of an old Danish tourist 
| poster, highlighting the new situation after 
| the new police powers, as demonstrated in the 
| heavy-handed clampdown on protesters at the 
| recent climate change summit in Copenhagen. 
| My friend Amila juxtaposed the mashup with 
| the original poster on her English-language 
| blog, creating a chilling and all too 
| realistic contrast." 



Sony Ebook Boss: DRM Needs To Stay And Ebooks Should Cost More Than $10

,----[ Quote ]
| PaidContent has the details on an interview
| with Steve Haber, the boss of Sony's ebook
| reader business, where he trashed the $10
| ebook and praised DRM. And now you all know
| why no one buys Sony ebook readers. Basically,
| the product's boss has decided to take an
| anti-consumer stance. Why would anyone want to
| shell out hundreds of dollars on a product
| when you know the company that makes it wants
| to screw you over?


Apple & Audiobook Firms Insist On DRM

,----[ Quote ]
| Yes, Apple. The company that at one point
| claimed DRM was bad and should be ditched,
| and convinced the record labels to ditch DRM.
| Yet, as we've noted in the past, outside of
| music, Apple is still a huge DRM supporter.
