The EFF has made a new animation on the DRM problem facing consumers. They show DRM as three supervillians set to destroy what consumers are allowed to do. Send this to anyone that doesn't know what DRM is and what it can do. I think they sugercoat it too much.


Digital radio laws would limit automatic recording to set programs, time periods or channels. You won't be able record an individual song, and you won't be able to separate individual songs from a recorded session and play them in a different order. You won't even be able to burn the music onto a CD or send it to another device. Digital radio would be shackled into historical feature sets that analog radios have had for decades with little room to innovate. Music fans will be cheated out of the benefits of digital technology.
