    DRM Doomed Part Deux

    INFO SCIENCE: I Cory Doctorow. Seriously, someone print me up a t-shirt that says that because I want to have this d00ds baby. He posted a wonderful talk he gave at Microsoft's Research Group on June 17, 2004. Please read. God bless him.







    DRM systems are broken in minutes, sometimes days. Rarely,

    months. It's not because the people who think them up are stupid.

    It's not because the people who break them are smart. It's not

    because there's a flaw in the algorithms. At the end of the day,

    all DRM systems share a common vulnerability: they provide their

    attackers with ciphertext, the cipher and the key. At this point,

    the secret isn't a secret anymore.



    I have no idea who took that photo, but I found it here.
