Re: DRM Explained

So I should say "you install the scanners for you".

That is sometimes called an externality, moving cost to others, a corporation fetish. Obviously DRM involves large overhead costs. Obviously corporations will push to make all of that overhead a profit center, or an externality, or both. Hopefully they will fail, spectactularly, and the more aggressive of them fail completely.
