Debate on DRM

Shelley Powers, Burningbird, Jan 11, 2006
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Good discussion of digital rights management. Read past the initial post and into the comments, where the real action happens. I appreciated, though, the author's comments on debate: she's quite right - the A-listers of the world don't debate, they quip - and usually only to each other. But what happens in the comments is a known-down all-out debate, with some knowledgeable people (Seth Finklestein, Julian Bond, Michael Bernstein) who do debate - and on other peoples blogs! Most views are well represented here; this quote (from mcubed) most closely represents my own: "The biggest fear of DRM is that it will preclude other means of distribution, access and perhaps even creation of content."
