The free, voluntary internet is being attacked by the real pirates like Microsoft (who wont comply with W3c standards etc), and also by companies like Sony and Apple etc, who support DRM and sell products such as mp3 players and ipods by using the false representation that these products allow the user to play their chosen music. Such products allow users only to access music etc that is APPROVED by the corporates. These companies are… Read more »
