What you should know about DRM

Digital Restrictions Management (DRM) is a technology that affects all users of computers, media players, mobile phones and other devices. DRM affects you. You may have seen it discussed as “Digital Rights Management” (DRM) or “Technological Protection Measures” (TPM). These terms suggest what DRM proponents believe to be the use and justification of Digital Restrictions Management, but hide what the technology must do to achieve this end: Imposing third-party restrictions on the users of a computer or other device, with or without the users consent. The Campaign DRM.info tries to show how DRM affects your life. It aims to boycott DRM-based devices and to protest against DRM initiatives.
