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

I am fully fed up with companies deciding how I can legally use my purchases. If I am using the product for my own personal use, what matter is it how many different places I use it. If a book, I can read it wherever I so chose. I can also let my family read that book. Why should software, music, or movies be any different? I think that if I purchase a product, I should be free to use it how I deem appropriate. Would I buy a board game that no one in my home but I could play? So why is a computer game any different?
