OpenP2P.com: MS DRM is pure smoke [July 17, 2003]

An interesting tidbit being discussed on O'Reilly. I have kinda ignored the whole DRM issue from the standpoint of music and video. I figure some sort of DRM will eventually be the norm, and that's fine; people deserve to get paid for their work. The two things that worry me, are Micro$oft getting some kind of monopoly on the technology, and companies tracking user's listening/viewing habits. The second one isn't an inherent part of DRM, but the big media companies want it and will try and slip it in.
