DRM Paper: A failure in the developed world, a danger to the developing world

EFF:: "This paper discusses the failure of DRM in the developed world, where it has been in wide deployment for a decade with no benefit to artists and with substantial cost to the public and to due process, free speech and other civil society fundamentals.

This paper also discusses the special risks to the developing world posed by DRM through restrictions on liberty, distance education, development efforts, criticism, and the creation and dissemination of culture."

It's by Cory Doctorow, great author and innovator in this area.
