A site dedicated to hating DRM


(via boingboing)

If you’ve read much of what I post, you might have picked up on the fact that I think Digital Restriction Mangling is a bad thing.  I knew I wasn’t the only one, but here is someone who is really dedicated to hating DRM.

Welcome to the “official” I Hate DRM site.  Over the last couple of years and especially over the last couple of months, the DRM issue has really received a lot of press.  I created this site because, as a consumer, I am fed up.  I feel like all of the entertainment that I love is slowly being eroded away by overly greedy companies.  This website is meant to be a platform to capture how DRM is changing the way paying customers are receiving content.  I want to hear your complaints, your horror stories, your whatever…even your good stories if you have one.

. . .

I created this site because I could no longer sit back and let this stuff happen without saying something.  The single consumer has little power and I didn’t know what else to do without going overboard.  So I figured I would start up a site and dedicate it to the horror stories around DRM.  My hope is that, at some point, someone from one of these companies realizes that DRM only hurts paying customers.
