I just saw on Boing Boing that there are going to be a ton of anti-DRM protests tomorrow, June 10, at Apple stores around the country .
We spend a lot of time talking about the idiocy of Digital Rights Management (DRM) technology in the magazine, but this is a great opportunity to go out, and educate some of the general public about the problems inherent with buying music from the iTunes Music Store. When people ask why buying music from iTunes is bad, we have a convenient bulleted list that you can print and take with you.
Buying music from iTunes is dangerously convenient, but it's a Bad Thing. When you purchase a music CD, you can easily copy it to an open format, play it on any music player you'd like, sell or loan it to a friend, or copy it as many times as you'd like.
I'll be at the San Francisco Apple Store Saturday (June 10) morning about 10:30 AM, wearing a Maximum PC fleece (my bunny suit is at the cleaners). Hope to see you guys there!
