FTC DRM meeting underway

There's a live streaming webcast of it, but apparently I don't have sufficient bandwidth to make it work. Links here:

It turned out to be the wrapper on the webcast that kept me from following it. Direct URL now updated in the article I linked.

From what I was able to see, the lawyer for the EFF was the only one who actually understood DRM.

For some reason that doesn't surprise me. LOL

I missed out completely on this being at work. Any links to a summary or article?

One problem we have is that the EULA that most eBook sellers have does not fit in with the terminology that they use when we pay for our eBooks. Amazon (for example) says Buy with 1-click. And when I buy something, I own it. I own the right to use it as fair use dictates. But DRM says I don't actually own it. But I was able to buy it. So I do own it and I will strip the DRM and use it as fiar use allows because I did buy it according to Amazon and other sellers.

I've seen sites that have in terms of use, in small print, that their usage of word "buy" does not reflect the common use of the word, and that you agree with that when you agree to terms of use... or some such. I don't know if Amazon has it though.

The Teleread article (linked to in the first post) has some links to comments, I'm having a look at them now.
