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

As a consumer who is very concerned about his rights I particular offense to even the idea of DRM. The only people these draconian methods keep from playing games, listening to music, and watching movies, are those unwilling to illegally obtain them. As one of these people i am tired of getting the poor end of the deal. When I buy media I buy it to listen, watch, or play it, whenever or wherever I fell like doing so. If I own the rights to listen to a song i purchased digitally there should be no limit to how often i move it from device to device. Not only is it inconvenient, but also highly unethical. All in all it only makes me think "Why buy something if it will limit me to using the product I now own?" I would greatly appreciate my rights being protected especially in this digital age where it's been progressively harder for the consumer to enjoy a product. I hope that someone will look out for us.
