FTC Town Hall to Address Digital Rights Management Technologies - Event Takes Place Wednesday, March 25, 2009, in Seattle

DRM is pitiful. It does nothing to stop hackers and others that want to pirate software/music/video/whatever. With a few minutes and google anyone can find anything they want DRM free. However the people who purchase the DRM'd product receive an inferior product. Often times the product will not work the way it is supposed to due to the DRM. Implementing and researching DRM technologies only increases the cost of the products so consumers and producers pay more while the pirates recieve better free products. Please do whatever it takes to rid the world of DRM, for it will be a better place without it.
