There is also a bottulism on this, which can be safely ignored.

The divide between commercially generated content and non- seems to be widening. As the technological barriers fall, political ones are being put up in their place.

M$ is certainly displaying a degree of greed and self-importance in taking this approach to "premium" content. If the performance reductions, the quality reductions, and the security flaws, spoken of in the article are significant enough to be readily apparent to the end user, then M$ and the DRM interests it’s trying to protect are just shooting themselves in the foot. I used to be more skeptical about the market's ability to self-correct, especially in the digital realm, but I think it can. The word-of-mouth spread of Firefox, even to relatively novice users, did a lot to alter my perceptions.

If someone can release a superior product around the time that high definition content is becoming ubiquitous and Vista’s flaws are showing (XP will be tangibly dated), then I'd be shocked if there wasn't a shift in the market. That said, I'm hesitant to demonize M$. There are clearly people within the company who are not happy about the company's direction (as evidenced by the 'Final Thoughts' section of the document). M$ still has the opportunity to patch these problems and reach a balance between commercial and end-user interests.

"The more you tighten your grip, Tarkin, the more star systems will slip through your fingers." If DRM implementation becomes overly Draconian, then people will fight overly hard to find ways around it.
