Looks like the issue of DRM is beginning to hit the mainstream media. There is an article over on BBC news covering the problems of DRM and largely coming down on the side of the consumer. Personally I wont be purchasing anything encumbered with DRM. I am quite happy to pay for content, but I really want the right to be able to play it where I want, when I want and on any device I may want. Not to mention using it for home movies or slide shows. I can only imagine the nightmare of having purchased thousands of pounds worth of content and have a hard drive fail or the company you purchase it from go out of business and be unable to authenticate your rights. Lets hope that the people vote with their wallets an buy high quality content that is not broken through godawful DRM and the distributors figure this out sooner rather than later.
