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."
