So, what's so bad about DRM, anyway?

So, what's so bad about DRM, anyway? I thought it was a terrific idea, myself. I mean, isn't it only fair? Guys get to wear those nice shirts with the little alligators on them. And golfers wear t-shirts and caps with funky check marks (or whatever that Nike thing is). So it seems fitting that now women can wear Dresses with Registered Monograms, too. Don't you think?

I thought DRM stood for Doggie Refuses Meat


Didn't make sense to me, I thought dogs loved meat (I know mine did.) Bacon was one of her favorites.

Everything else, being reality, doesn't really matter.

DRM is an attempt to prevent you to use the content you have purchased beyond the device you have purchased to use it on. It's an attempt to hinder your control such that f you by in say eReader and move to a Sony Reader, you'd have to purchase the content again if you wanted to reread it. This is highly restrictive and no nice.

I personally think those monogrammed (or icon-laden) clothes are just evidence of crass consumerism and elitism. I'm sure the very idea conflicts with my Quaker values of "plain dress."

Dresses with Registered Monograms - good
Doggie Refuses Meat - definitely not good (poor puppy!)
Dirty Rotten Mongrels - not good (must have been a pack of lemurs)
Does Reality Matter? - of course not
Doesn't Really Matter - as I said
Dinner Requires Money - not good
Deadpan Replies from Moderator - no comment
Dirigibles Requiring Maintenance - not good, particularly if someone was going to fly one
Dandelions Reputedly Maligned - not good
Dill, Rosemary, and Marjoram - good but not together, please
Dada Ridiculously Misunderstood - not good

By my count, I think not good is leading. Gee, I'd hate to think DRM really isn't very good.

Dada Ridiculously Misunderstood is clearly a bad thing and i really don't see how there could even be grounds for an argument there. The same goes for Dirigibles Requiring Maintenance and Dandelions Reputedly Maligned (i like dandelions !!!). i won't even bother to cite the others, the evidence is overwhelming. it may pain you to admit it, but i think you must accept that DRM really isn't very good.
