This lawsuit could be the beginning of the end for DRM | Defective by Design - 1 views

  •  
    Submitted by Zak Rogoff on August 17, 2016 - 9:20am Our friends at the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) recently filed a lawsuit challenging Section 1201 of the US's Digital Millenium Copyright Act, which provides legal reinforcement to the technical shackles of Digital Restrictions Management (DRM). Defective by Design applauds this lawsuit and agrees with the EFF that Section 1201 violates the right to freedom of speech. We hope that excising Section 1201 from US law can be the beginning of the end for DRM.

This post takes a look at the legal issues raised by both cases and what they mean for FOSS producers and users."
