DRM, NIN, and DBD

I've mentioned before my praise for the Creative COW magazine. Well, Tim Wilson over there often has great posts that I read with my nifty Google Reader [cough, cough]. Most recently he posted about the rise of DRM-free music. A fantastic post that made my wife giddy. Read it: Raising the stakes for DRM-free music.

This reminds me of DefectiveByDesign.org. I get their emails and sometimes take action. Sometimes not. It really depends on whether they have a point or not. It's about 50/50.

I am very much against DRM. At the same time, I am a firm believer that people should be paid if they want to be. These ideals are easily kept in mind at the same time, but often these two camps ideologically oppose each other, which is rather annoying.

Suffice it to say: Read Tim's post.
