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.
