The Top 10 Arguments Against DRM

,----[ Gist ]
| 1. DRM doesn't prevent illegal use of files, it just makes it a bit
| more difficult to access them.
| 2. All it takes is one person to crack the file and it can be made
| available to everyone.
| 3. Anyone selling content on CD is already selling unprotected files 
| anyway.
| 4. DRM adds a lot of costs for content producers
| 5. There's a huge hidden cost in trying to sell DRM'ed content
| 6. Often the costs of the DRM are passed along to the consumer as well.
| 7. DRM-free content will play on your device of today and your device
| of tomorrow
| 8. Your media devices of the future will be significantly different than 
| your media devices of the present.
| 9. DRM fundamentally changes who is control of your media.
| 10. Whenever you buy DRM'ed content you support the system of DRM

| ormat with its own ATRAC audio compression scheme in order to retain
| control over digital music files and limit the potential for music
| file sharing.
