The True Cost Of Vista DRM

Filed under: Copyright,Geek News and Stuff,General,Politics — site admin @ 4:12 pm

In this rather long article, A Cost Analysis of Windows Vista Content Protection, Peter Gutmann writes about the hazards of Windows Vista, the hidden costs of Digital Rights Management (or as Slashdotters refer to it Digital Restrictions Management since it’s designed to restrict our rights to view digital materials) and what it will do to our hardware. This is what happens when we let a company – Microsoft – get too big. Monopoly laws are supposed to protect us and haven’t.

This is why I try not to keep feeding the beast.
