There is no need for DRM and it needs to die. That's just common sense.

The problem with digital rights is that the wrong people are in control.

The idea is too protect the author not the retailer.

No, of course it's NOT common sense!

Common sense, of course, would include me, myself and I.

But me myself and I don't and won't agree - never ever!

So, it's NOT (completely) common sense!

Agreed!

This (to protect the author) SHOULD be common sense!

It is marketed as a tool to protect authors, but anybody with common sense would know that it isn't true. Anybody with common sense would agree with what I said in the first place.

Either way, this is last year's news. I ditched Firefox a long time ago.

I'm glad the Pale Moon developers are doing the right thing by not implementing this.

EDIT: The only DRM I can be close to tolerating, would be the one Valve uses with Steam and the only reason why is because it doesn't f*** over the consumers.
