Briefly Noted | What the powers-that-be think about DRM, and an explanation of the cloud – The Shatzkin Files
I agree with the contention from opponents of DRM that support for it doesn’t have much basis in meaningful data although, in fact, there’s not really much meaningful data on either side on the books for which this debate matters most. For some reason, it feels like the anti-DRM side thinks you need convincing evidence to justify support for keeping DRM, but it isn’t a requirement to advocate removing it. But it is clear that my proposition — that it is wildly inaccurate to accuse DRM supporters of universally believing that they’re stopping piracy by employing it – is researchable. So I took a poll.
