Apple not using enough DRM?

Media Rights Technology is issuing cease and desist letters to Microsoft and Apple for not using enough DRM in their players. They argue that not using their technology is the same as circumvention and are using the DMCA as a basis for their suit. I expect that this will be thrown out.

An HBO CEO says the reason that users are so resistant to DRM is the fact it is called DRM. They suggested that it be called Digital Consumer Enablement, or DCE. The name is ironic in and of itself seeing as how they are actually disabling the digital consumer. Lunacy.

The DMCA needs to be overturned. It's the most anti-consumer law ever, and it's been abused in cases like this too many times.
