DRM Is A Crime!

One of the first things I did for the Open Rights Group was to help write evidence on DRM for the All Party Internet Group (APIG). APIG released their report yesterday. Although I think it doesn’t go far enough, it certainly has taken into account many of the concerns that we, and others, have raised.

I particularly like this bullet point from their summary:

A recommendation that OFCOM publish guidance to make it clear that companies distributing Technical Protection Measures systems in the UK would, if they have features such as those in Sony-BMG’s MediaMax and XCP systems, run a significant risk of being prosecuted for criminal actions.
