DRM - Is It Worth Going To Jail For?
The RIAA and the MPAA are well insulated against us. There is no actual way we have to get to them, except through the court system, and either entity has enough money to outlast any individual in the court system. The frustrating part of fighting this DRM/TC nightmare is the inaccessability of either organization. However, there is a way to get to them, in a way. Unfortunately it may be illegal to do so. Under no circumstances should this be done.

The only people who can influence either group are the retailers that carry the DRM'ed dvd's and cd's. If by chance, millions of people were to, on the same day and within the same three hour period, purchase a number of DRM'ed disks, then walk out the door then back in and return the merchandise, it would cause havoc in the retail world for that day.
Read the whole thing and - like the posting says - don't buy a CD on July 4th between 11 and 14 and immediately return it because it has DRM.
