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
DayAgainstDRM.org to take action against DRM with events, petitions
and more, then meet the anti-DRM community and enjoy sales on
In addition to individuals taking action through
DayAgainstDRM.org, 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
site. We expect more to join throughout the day.
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.
