Punishing the Honest People, Courtesy of DRM

Vinyl record

DRM is fortunately going away, at least as far as audio is concerned. With DRM, everyone is considered a so-called ‘pirate’ until proven otherwise, and even then (when proven innocent) the customer is mistreated while pirates enjoy DRM-free media, which is easy to obtain because DRM is flawed by design. At the end of the day, pirates enjoy media more than paying consumers, which is ironic.

Corollary: That’s why DRM is never the solution. It only introduces new problems.

DRM is broken. It needs to be shunned.
