Very simply put. DRM is an attempt to place control that was not originally there. Going back through the history of entertainment, the roots are as follows. A person performs. Audience enjoys. Audience contributes. Examples are... Nine Inch Nails earns a profit in the millions from a free distribution. Fans were encouraged to pay what they believe was the worth of the music. In this day and age, there is no need for CD makers, producers and other middle men. In terms of the movies, movies should find ways to cut costs and dont limit the customer. DVD's are sold and resold or given away for free as gifts after a person has bought them. This should be the same for digital versions.
