October third saw a variety of protests in a number of cities in Europe, all protesting against DRM or Digital Restrictions Management. A new web site informing people about DRM was born as well, powered largely by the Free Software Foundation Europe, called DRM.info. That link goes to an interesting article about how DRM has infected Vista to such an extent that graphics cards might not be able to manage the required encryption and decryption so that movies are not jumpy in playback.
Be thankful if you have a Mac, somehow Steve Jobs has refused to permit such draconian attacks on Apple computers. Unless there is someone out there who knows about any DRM at the graphics card level? If so, do tell.
