Cory has published the speech on DRM he recently gave to Microsoft Research.

American film studios didn't want the Japanese electronics companies to get a piece of the movie pie, so they fought the VCR. Today, everyone who makes movies agrees that they don't want to let you guys get between them and their customers.

Sony didn't get permission. Neither should you. Go build the record player that can play everyone's records.

Because if you don't do it, someone else will.

Read it. Then read it again. Then check that you can remember the arguments he illuminates and illustrates using his extraordinary talent for a darn good story.

Then forward the link (http://craphound.com/msftdrm.txt) to world & wife.
