DRM

The "Using Rootkits to Defeat DRM" article is a couple months old but the discussion in the comments is interesting. Some of it relates to what I experienced when I installed the Digium TDM400P card on my computer (the software didn't recognize the card, assumed "evil-by-default" and disabled various licenses for legitimately purchased software. Add a very-difficult-to-locate customer service department to that and I understand a lot of the attitude. Not that I condone it, mind you, but I do understand it.
