The Real Issue

Let me put plain English it was not for DRM one person would buy a song 200 would Bit Torrent it because of some notion music should be free. Do not give me the flack oh I would pay if there was no DRM. You do give rats’ ass about screwing over producer as long as you got yours.

Hate to tell you this, even WITH the DRM, files do get shared.

DRM does nothing. When the newest protection scheme gets beat down in a week, or sooner, it cost EVERYONE more for... nothing!

Lost cause really.
At some point, the media has to be able to be played, right?
Well, if it plays, it can be copied!

F!@#ing scary. Just because you will have the technology to do this does not make it right. Once this type of sceme goes into effect I will have no reservations about pirating.

Wasn't plain English, but anyway. Aren't people already bit torrenting and limewiring everything anyway? Can't see how removing the DRM would make things worse for that industry. But what do I know.
