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

As a consumer, I am displeased with the entertainment industry's insistence on employing Digital Rights Management technologies. It inconveniences me and others who legitimately purchase their products, while doing little to hinder "pirates"--who are (arguably) encouraged by the industry's efforts. I feel that, should the entertainment industry continue this practice, consumers have a right to know all the specifics/limitations of DRM, anything less is deceptive marketing.
