International Day Against DRM is here!

Powerful entertainment and technology companies use Digital
Restrictions Management
to restrict our use of digital media. We
organize and build tools to protect our access to it. Our opponents
are strong enough to have the government on their side in most
countries, but when we come together, we are strong too.

Today we come together for the eighth International Day Against DRM,
to insist on a future without restrictions on our media. This is the
largest anti-DRM event in the world, and it's growing. Head over to to take action against DRM with events, petitions
and more, then meet the anti-DRM community and enjoy sales on
DRM-free media.

Happy International Day Against DRM

In addition to individuals taking action through, nine organizations have let Defective by
Design know they are participating. See a full list, including
community groups, activist organizations and media stores, on the Web
. We expect more to join throughout the day.

If you have a microblog account, make
sure to let your followers know today that you care about ending
DRM. Post with the hashtag #DayAgainstDRM and link to

If you don't have time to do anything, you can donate to
Defective by Design
, to keep us organizing the Day and make it
even better next year.

Happy International Day Against DRM, and good luck with whatever
action you take. I hope to see you at one of the actions today,
on the DRM-elimination crew discussion list or the #dbd IRC
channel on Freenode.
