DRM Primer

\"You start up a DVD movie and before the film starts, you encounter an annoying advertisement. But when you try to fast-forward past the commercial, your player doesn\'t respond.\"
\"You can play your new audio CD on your stereo system, but when you insert it into the CD drive on your Macintosh computer [or PC for that matter], the CD doesn\'t work.\"
DRM. Have so few letters ever inspired such fear in the hearts of librarians?

On the desk, I was flipping though the April 8, 2003 PC Magazine that was patiently waiting to be processed. Inside I found a good little article on DRM. If you don\'t know about DRM you might want to learn about it. For starters it is an acronym for Digital Rights Management. But I don\'t need to sit here insulting your intelligence. Read the article, which happens to have a nice DRM webliography.
