0pen your mind

this site called rfidjournal published this article about the possibility of dvd players which would only play discs tagged with the ok seal. two major problems with this scenario spring readily to my mind--for one, what about home videos and stuff you copy off tv or indy dvds (none of which will be tagged), and two, this method of 'protection' once again eliminates the ability of the consumer to back up his or her legally purchased media.

and i think as consumers, we are becoming numb to this. fair use doesn't mean what it used to anymore. hell, it doesn't seem to mean much of anything, anymore. we need to stand up before it's too late. DON'T BUY DRM-RESTRICTED MUSIC AND MOVIES (and don't forget that there are exceptions to every rule--you have to make up your own mind).

if you've got anything to say, get it off your chest.
