DRM doesn't work

Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth: “Note to content owners: DRM doesn’t work”

Some of his “reality bites”:

  1. Any DRM that involves offline key storage will be broken.
  2. The alternative to offline key storage is streaming-only access, and that is equally unprotectable.
  3. Someone will find a business model that doesn’t depend on the old way of thinking, and if it is not you, then they will eat you alive.
