I loved the "Home Sewing is Killing Fashion" blob. So, if my wife purchases the pattern for a dress, and makes more than one, she is violating their copyright? Man, I'd LOVE to see what she would do to the asshole who suggests that! Most likely, his lips would be stitched to his dick!
I think that the RIAA, MPAA, and others of their ilk forget that they should not cut off their noses to spite their faces! It's so simple, even a child with a lemonade stand (where that isn't illegal these days) can tell them that if you piss off your customers, you lose business!
There is zero good coming from DRM (or Digital Restriction Management as Mr. Stallman would say). It is only a way to cause users serious pain and suffering. I can get that simply by asking my wife how her day went...
Just in case you were interested why I REFUSE to use Microsoft products... Read no further. Great phones but crappy battery life and worse software. I am much happier with my Samsung Galaxy 5 and One-on-One Android phones. Everything else in my universe runs Linux.
Once upon a time, the Met didn't allow police to have guns, and they maintained law and order via the respect and cooperation of the citizens. What happened? I lived in London in 1962-1963 and NEVER saw a cop with a gun!
Hackers don't bother to worry about violations of copyright, and the DMCA won't stop them from hacking stuff. You are idiots, and until you start giving people the means to protect themselves when using your (their) vehicles, then don't expect me to invest any of my hard-earned $$ in them!
