Today Is International Day Against DRM

Digital Restriction Management DRM is the piece of code stuck to your
digital media and various computerized devices put there by major media
corporations to stop you from sharing your files. The music that you
bought have it so you can't copy it and play it in your car's music
player. The movie DVD that you bought have it so you can't copy it for
your mother watching her tv upstairs. But DRM is more than a terrible
inconvenience, it is power held by corporations and media companies over
our cars, phones, computers and more of our daily lives intersect with
DRM if we don't stand up for our rights in the digital world.

Support Free Software. Digital devices have software called firmware or
drivers. It's a good idea to use free software in our devices to
liberate our devices from corporate controls.

Not all good motives end well. You thought you were doing somebody a favor but the other person is doing you mischief.
