Cory Doctorow DRM Talk

On June 17, 2004, science fiction author and EFF spokesman Cory Doctorow talked to Microsoft Research Group and other interested parties about Digital Rights Management (DRM), copyright, and the technology that cleaves them together and apart. In five parts, Doctorow covers everything from DVD region coding and the player piano to the Apple iTunes Music Store and why Sony didn’t create the digital successor to its once-ubiquitous Walkman. Everything you ever wanted to know about DRM, but were afraid to tell Microsoft.

Ah sunflower, weary of time,
Who countest the steps of the sun;
Seeking after that sweet golden clime,
Where the traveler’s journey is done;

Where the youth pined away with desire,
And the pale virgin shrouded in snow,
Arise from their graves and aspire
Where my Sunflower wishes to go.”

–William Blake
