DRM is a failed business model in music, movies, and e-books. It begins 
from a fundamentally flawed assumption ... that your customers are 
criminals. Second, it attempts to solve an insolvable cryptographic 
problem, which is where the attacker and intended recipient are the same 
person (kinda like trying invent a way to hide the cookies from 
yourself). It looks like it will soon be a non-existent model in the 
music industry, and hopefully the AACS key debacle with HD-DVD will 
launch the end of it in movies as well.
